ELIMINATE DEFENDERS TRAINING ACTIVITY

This training activity is about moving the opposition which then opens up the space they just vacated, for your team to take advantage of. In the AFL you’ll rarely see a player give a handball before forcing the defender to commit to them, freeing up the receiver to take ground once they take possession but it...

PLAYER FRAMEWORKS AND HOW IT CAN HELP HARRY McKAY

Yesterday I was watching some Youtube while on my daily treadmill and I clicked on yet another ex-NBA and now-NBA commentator JJ Redick talking with Portland young stud Anfernee Simons about what was the biggest change/s for him coming from high school to the NBA. Simons was used to shooting any shot he wanted in...

HEAD COACH AS A COACH DEVELOPER AT LOCAL LEVEL

After reading the study I posted about earlier this week, it got my juices flowing about how this could be implemented in local footy and who does what from senior level down all the way down to junior level. I’m well-aware of the this probably not being applicable for a lot of clubs by if...

HEAD COACH AS A COACH DEVELOPER (STUDY)

These notes come yet another study that you can read in its entirety here.

PLAY YOUR POSITION TRAINING ACTIVITY

First training activity for 2024 and it’s a genuine banger called Play Your Position. Even at local level footy is position-less for the most part with teams from all levels using zone defenses against kick outs and high defensive presses when the ball is in their own forward 50. This game is a great way...
