Develop Better Individual Defense with this 1 vs. 1 Activity!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Jason Breyo, Lambert (GA) High School Assistant Coach, shows you a 1 vs. 1 defensive drill that will help athletes learn the basics of playing good individual defense. This will also lead to developing the skills needed to play good team defense. Coach Breyo begins by teaching the developing defenders the importance of quick footwork in order to play solid defense. 

1 vs. 1 Defense

Player Movements: This drill begins by having a defensive player take on an attackman without using the long pole. As the drill progresses and the player now uses the D-pole. The defenders are instructed again on proper positioning, using an effective poke check, staying on the attackman’s hands, and keeping the stick in front of the man.

Drill Essentials: For the attackman, emphasize the importance of beginning a drive with their off-hand, switching hands, and roll dodging. For the defender, focus on proper stance, direction that he wants to drive the offensive player, use of the drop step, shuffling his feet, and effective pushing.

Drill Tips: The defender should work on cutting across the crease to get a better angle on the attacker and keep them from getting closer to the goal.

Long time youth volleyball coach and president of the Eastside Volleyball Club, Tim Vande Schraaf, helps young athletes with passing techniques and encourages them to call for the ball. Parents can get involved in this drill which develops their understanding of the game too.

Because the players are young, expectations are not high based on their developing abilities so methods of moving the drill along are discussed. The drill should be run in both directions so players get accustomed to moving both ways. A variation on the drill can use overhead passing.
