"Take Charge" Defensive Drills
with Amy Bokker,
Stanford University Head Women's Lacrosse Coach;
Assistant Coach and Defensive coordinator for the US Women's National Lacrosse team,
2 time Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Coach of the Year
Control and dictate the movement of your opponent's attackers using body positioning, stick positioning and footwork.
Using marker board diagrams and on field demonstrations, Amy Bokker showcases a series of 10 progressive drills to develop the footwork, body position, and hand position you need to successfully play individual defense.
The drills progress from individual skills in one-on-one situations into small game situations that require teamwork and communication. More advanced drills include 4v4 man-to-man, double team drills and 6V6 team drills. These advanced drills will show you how to develop pressure, how to double team attackers, 1st 2nd and 3rd slide package movement, and how to defend and hand off cutters.
Coach Bokker also demonstrates a 3v3v3 drill that will enhance your players' situational field awareness.
These drills are meant to help defenders take charge of a determined attack individually and in team defense. Included are drills that focused on gaining possession of the ball and then moving it or protecting it for short periods. These competitive drills will keep your players moving and working in teams to gain the ball, defend against passes, and create turnovers through aggressive play, containment, and double teams.
Add these drills to your practice plan and watch as your defensive players take charge of their end of the field. 78 minutes. 2012. DVD.
