Catch Me If You Can- Defense

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.

Body Movement
  • 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
Restrictive Marking
  • 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

  • Your video/s should be no more than 30secs long.
  • Capture you demonstrating the Success Criteria- Defense!

Evaluation: (How do I think I have gone achieving the success criteria) I landed with a stable body position. I need to get better at being on the balls of my feet.

Feedback/Feedforward: (Get a critical friend to watch the video and give some Feedback-what you did well & FeedforwardWhat you can work on next). Make sure you look at the ball so you can intercept it. Jazmine
