Learn the Basics to Good Defensive Play!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Watch as Assistant Coach Jason Breyo, at Lambert, Georgia High School, teaches the basics needed for good defensive play. It begins with a Five Yard Side-to-Side drill (without sticks). The next progression of this drill is to incorporate the players stick called the Five Yard Side-to-Side drill (with sticks). The conclusion of this progression adds an attackman.

Agility Drills

How it Works: Cones are placed on a line about 5 to 10 yards apart. The player is to step behind the first cone, stand in an athletic stance on the balls of his feet, with his hands out front; Then shuffles to the other cone and back. The next progression of this drill now incorporates the player’s stick. The player is to lift their stick in the air, because of the uncertainty which direction the offensive player will go.

The last step is to add an Attackman. The defensive player is to keep his stick in front of the offensive player, lift it at the end, and place it again in front of the offensive player as he changes direction. This part of the drill also gives the offensive players an opportunity to practice cradling with one hand and changing hands in order to keep their body between the defender and the ball.

Drill Tips: When shuffling to the cone, be sure that the players do not cross their feet.
