GAME SKILLS SETTLED DEFENSE


WHAT IS IT? Team defense means all players are working to prevent


the opposing team from taking high percentage shots and trying to create turnovers to regain ball possession.


WHEN the opposing team has possession of the ball


FUNDAMENTALS


COMMUNICATION The defensive players must talk so they can support each other.


FOOTWORK All defenders should stay balanced on their feet, ready to move.

Stick shadowing and solid body positioning should be taught and encouraged everywhere on the field.

Marking up means defender is matching herself up within a stick’s length to an opponent.


Defensive team will want to clear the ball (passing or running) out of their defensive end quickly.


The obstruction of free space to goal (shooting space) rule is in place to keep defenders safe and to encourage safe shooting by the attacker.
