Control the possession

Not sure if this is an original or not, but I couldn’t sleep one night and I came up with the below. As it turns out there is a similar routine included in the Coerver Diploma.

Split your group of players into 2 teams, team A and B.  Team A starts with a pool of 5 balls, their job is to keep possession as long as possible. Lose possession and they move onto the next ball until the team run out. The whole thing is timed, and at the end the time recorded is used as a benchmark against Team B.

The two groups swap roles once recovery is completed and the process starts again.

Coaching Points.

  • Movement of players to create space
  • Communication
  • Ball retention
