Coaching Guidance

Help stress the importance of keeping your head up while you have the ball.  When a teammate makes a move or a cut, that is when they are most likely to be open and ready to receive a pass.



  1. Set up 5 hot spots on the arc


  1. Divide the girls up into groups of 4 placing each girl at each hot spot (there should be one open cone)


  1. One player has the ball to start (marked by X)


  1. The player with the ball should run to a cone where there is already a girl


  1. The player at the cone to where the ball carrier is running needs to move to another cone


  1. The ball carrier should make a cut, or dodge or some move around the cone she is running to

(to simulate shaking off a defender)


  1. Then the player should look to make a pass - ideally adjacent to her position



  • Have both girls without the ball move - one girl should be moving to where the ball carrier was


  • One girl should be moving to the open space that already existed



Have 4 girls at the cones and see if they can all make moves to find a different cone than where they started

  • Teaching the concept of constant motion by all players
