DEFENCE is all about Reading the Game! Every one has to defend. Some defences are experts and some are part timers. Every one defends but not everyone knows what they are doing. Some just look like they are defending without being effective others are very effective but they still don’t know how or why. It is your job (the coach), to sort them out and explain the whats, the hows and the whys. WHAT is good defending? Good defending can force errors, bring about intercepts, and the most rewarding of all good defending can force a held ball. Yes, but how? Read on we’re getting there… WHY? Why is it so? I don’t know we just do, attack and defend its all part of the game. That’s how you play the game! Seriously, it’s all about possession of the ball and without it you cannot score goals. Why? Because defence puts pressure on the attacking side, it forces errors and turns over possession. How can you defend effectively? With fitness determination and persistent effort. Yes but HOW? Read on…. THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO DEFEND 1. Man to man from all around the body, in front, behind, facing, from either side, off the player or defending the space and team defence. Man to man is an old term used to describe close one on one defence and is the most effective way to defend. 2. The side on position can be used to force attacker in a certain direction usually the side line. 3. Defend from behind to stop the lob, or force to the outer edge of the circle. 4. Off the player is when the defence stands away and in the space you think your opposite might want to move to after she has thrown the ball. 5. The next space is the space where you think the attack might throw the ball to. I hope this makes sense to you. Work out which is most effective and use it. Yes! But how? By watching! Eyes up! For example you can tell by watching an opposition player which side she likes to leads to, left, right or straight. You can tell which way she passes the ball, quickly, slowly, from the shoulder etc. Does she hesitate or pass on the first look. Knowing all this you can work out the best position to defend her...
