Drill of the Week: COACHES CALL

  nnnnnn This Drill Allows for

Small Sided Game
Support Play
Tackle and Evasion
Team Attack
Team Defence

In this Drill, the group is split up into defenders and forwards, as in the animation, and the coach should have many balls near them.

The first number that the coach calls is the number of defenders and the 2nd number is the number of Forwards.

In this example the call would be "two" "three".

One of the forwards must always go around the pole nearest the coach to start the attack.

The coach should not delay in calling the next groups once the drill has started, so the intensity is kept high and the players must react and organise.

In this drill the coach can present the players with different scenarios very quickly, which they must try to find a solution to.
