TIP OF THE WEEK
29th September 2002

Feeding the Shooters

Stepping In
This is a method of getting closer to the post to shoot.
The Shooter sets to shot and then turns and passes the ball out to either the WA or C.
She then steps forward and receives the ball back from the feeder.

Coaching Points

• The shooter must remember which foot she has landed on as she catches the ball in the circle
• If she lands on her left foot she must step forward onto her right foot and turn to her left, otherwise "footwork" will be called
• As she turns she bends down and passes the ball back to the feeder as though she were making a rugby pass!!
• She remains bending down and receives a quick ball back from the feeder
• The shooter then straightens up and prepares to shoot
• She can perform the same exercise, but this time she must step forward onto her left foot and turn to her right

• It is essential that the shooter sets up to shot to encourage the defender to move back to 3'
and that the ball is given back very quickly to her.

• The WA and C must be aware of which way the shooter is going to turn, and be positioned so that
the pass can be made to them. They must understand that if the shooter lands on her left foot she will then
step onto her right foot and
turn to her left and vice versa
