drawing Scoring ability under physical strain
  • Make pairs
  • Place 3 pawns in a triangle, about 4 meters apart
  • Players stand at pawns 1 and 3
  • Player at pawn 1 has a ball

Progression:
  • Player at pion 3 runs to pion 2 taps him and runs back.
  • The player at pion 1 throws the ball before player 2 arrives at the pion, so that the ball is given in the run.
  • When the ball arrives at player 2 then player 1 at pion 1 runs to pion 2 and the player at pion 1 runs to pion 2 and back.
  • Gets the ball passed in the run when she/he arrives at pion 1 again.
  • Then player 2 starts again.
More difficult:
Throwing with the other hand.

Variation:
  • player 1 at pawn 1 and player 2 at pawn 3.
  • player 1 runs to pawn 2 and player 2 throws the ball in the run to player 1.
  • After throwing the ball, player 2 runs directly to pawn 1 and receives the ball in the run from player 1.
  • Player 1 then runs towards the free pawn again and so on.
  • When the trainer calls yes, the players turn the other way.
  • Make sure they keep throwing with the outside hand.
  • Put 3 pawns in a triangle, with about 4 meters apart
  • At pawns 1 and 3, one person stands.
  • The player at pawn 1 has the ball.

  • The player at pion 3 runs to pion 2, taps it and runs back.
  • The player at pawn 1 throws the ball to player 2 before he is back at the 3rd pawn.
  • Thus the ball is given in the run.
  • When the ball arrives at player 2, player 1 then runs to pawn 2 and back again in which he then gets the ball passed by player 2 in the run.
  • The ball is played in to a high support and the inspeler threatens to pass.
  • The support shifts the ball to the side or back of the basket, onto a moving player.
  • The player behind the basket takes a shot.
  • The inspeler comes over the support and catches the ball.
  • The catcher plays the ball forward to the runaway support.
  • The shooter assumes the support position and the interceptor becomes the new shooter.
This exercise can be played from any side.
The goal of the exercise is to use the whole field and create space in the game.

drawing Rear basket utilization
  • The player behind the basket plays the ball sideways and briefly moves back and forth in the broadside line.
  • Simultaneously with the play-in, the forward player comes to the basket and makes a through ball.
  • The first player catches the ball and places the ball out toward the pass-through shooter.
  • The catcher takes the place of the declarer and the declarer becomes the shooter.
drawing Walk-through ball with catch from space
  • The forwards player plays the ball into the support and runs towards the support.
  • The support plays the ball to the fellow attacker coming in from the side just before the striker reaches him.
  • The striker runs around the support and receives the ball from the fellow attacker and takes a through ball.
  • The shooter catches the ball himself and places it forward.
  • The support becomes a through-ball.
  • The co-attacker support.
  • The shooter becomes co-attacker.
Score 20 times over left and 20 times over right.
drawing Walk-through ball over support
  • In this exercise you use 2 poles facing each other.
  • At each pole there is a declarer.
  • One of the attackers has the ball.
  • The posts are +/- 10 meters apart.
  • At about 4 meters from the basket on the side stands an attacker with a defender.

  • The attacker goes to the side of the post to make an offensive move to receive the ball for the shot.
  • The goal is for the defender to give so much pressure that the ball cannot be thrown. If this happens the attacker makes a running action to the other post.
  • The one standing in support throws the ball. the attacker must first make a rebound and only then make the through ball.
drawing Deep through ball
  • Player A plays to B.
  • B places through on the to the side running out C.
  • C plays through to the to the tip of the circle running in on D and C threatens in.
  • B, after the pass to C, runs around C to the basket and gets the through ball indicated by D.
  • A, meanwhile, has run to the backcourt to replenish if needed.
drawing Walk-through ball after deflection via running block
Goal: as a player to free your fellow players after a long line.
  • The pole is the central point.
  • The playing field is divided into 4 squares.
  • If the player can pass to someone diagonally, do so after long runs.
Points:
  • Scoring from pass wide = 1p
  • Scoring from diagonal = 2p
  • Hitting basket from diagonal = 1p
  • Passer without a defender
  • Attacker without defender
  • Both with defender; 2 against 2
drawing Passing after long running
  • 4 v 4 on badminton court with a post in the middle
  • Practice passing discipline, starting with contact but now can go either side or long diagonal
  • If you have a shot, take it, if not pass it on
  • Others pay attention, looking for a shot, in order to come in for a collect
  • If no shot looks likely, go out again
  • After each shot, reset and start again
  • Switch roles after 3 shots or 5 minutes whichever comes first
  • 4 v 4 on badminton court with post in the middle
  • Same passing drill but now can go in other directions including long diagonal, must make contact prior to pass
  • If you have a shot - take it, other attackers to watch and if shot is on, get to collect, shooter also follows in
  • Reset after each shot, after 3 shots or five minutes which ever comes first, swap roles
  • 4 v 4 on badminton court with post in middle
  • Practice the passing exercise but now have choice of which way, still need to make contact first
  • If you have a shot, take it, if not pass to someone else, include long diagonal, emphasise contact first
  • If there is a shot going up and you are nearest, get to post to collect, shooter to follow shot in
  • After a shot, reset and go again, swap roles after three shots or five minutes which ever comes first
