21st October 2002

Circle work for GK/GD

• This exercise will help the defender's mobility in the circle when she is defending in front of her shooter

Description of practice

• The defender must always be in front of her shooter, between the ball and the shooter
• The ball is passed between the feeders
• The feeders must not pass the ball too quickly between them to begin with!!

• They can occassionally pass the ball to the shooter - hopefully the defender will make the interception

Coaching Points

• The defender has to use "quick feet" to make sure she always gets and stays in front.
• Her foot base has to be small
• She has to make sure that when she moves she does not contact the shooter
• She has to use her peripheral vision to keep an eye on the ball and the shooter
