Every week we learn about skills and movement that will help us play sports. This term’s focus has been around defense. We made a video showing some of the goals we have been practicing. I have highlighted the thing I think I have done well YELLOW and one thing I would like to work on PINK.
WALT: Defensive skills and movements
❏ Weight on balls of feet
❏ Feet shoulder width apart
❏ Knees flexed
❏ Concentration and eyes on ball, head and eyes up
❏ Push hard off outside foot and go forwards to attack pass
❏ Quick small feet, stay on balls of feet
❏ Arms within confines of body
❏ Take feet to ball
❏ Land with a SBP
❏ Body angled to see player and ball
❏ Anticipate pass and player movement
❏ Meet player as they start towards the ball/where they want to go
❏ stay close to the attacking player
❏ Head and eyes up, arms close to body to avoid obstruction/contact
❏ Angle body so attacking player is ‘pushed’ away from where he/she wants to go
❏ 0.9m from ball carrier
Evaluation: I think I need to work on o.9m from the ball carrier.
Feedback/Feedforward: you did a good job of intersecting but you could of timed your run a bit better Thomas.
