the Shooters - Drawing Defenders
off the Shooter
This is another example from the quite excellent video from
New Zealand "Shooting for Excellence"
I'm not sure where you can get a copy from now, maybe someone
can lets us know.
If you want a shooting video, then this is the one I would
use it all the time.
is another method of getting the ball to the shooter, close
to the post.
The GA drives into the circle
2. The WA (or C) fakes a pass to the GA
3. The GA continues her drive, thus drawing one if not both
defenders with her
4. The WA (or C) is now able to feed the ball to the shooter,
who is standing free under the post
is a fine example where a player does something for the good
of the team.
Sometimes I feel the shooters are in competition with one
another to see who can score the most goals.
Here the GA is making a drive that will draw the defence away
and leave her shooter partner undefended.
GA and WA (or C) have to convince the defenders that the GA
is going to get the ball.
The drive from the GA has to be positive and she could even
ask for the ball.
The GS has to have the confidence to hold her ground, and
wait for the ball to be passed to her.
The pass from the WA (or C) has to be high enough, so as to
clear the defence should they start to come back on the GS
it a go. I'll be giving some more tips for shooters later
on this month.
