3 Proven Methods for Beating Any Defense
From US Lacrosse...
Something to think about as you begin your 2014 spring season...
On-Ball Attack: Target the Front Hip or Shoulder
Most defenders working on ball will try to drop step with you as you dodge them, direct you down the alley or take away your strong hand. The key to attacking these defenders is to target their front hip or shoulder. If you make a strong move to that front hip or shoulder, he or she will have to switch positions and end up on your backside as you shoot. If the defender extends to make contact, emphasize driving through the check and forcing the defender to turn and run. The player on the offensive always has the momentum.
Off-Ball Attack: Get Close to the Defender
Most defenders have to help to the center or adjacent to anticipate a slide. Your goal when attacking these off-ball defenders is to get close to them. Too many offensive players are content to stay wide of the play to spread the offense out that they take themselves out of shooting and scoring range. Get up close to the defender and force him or her to play you. It will create a longer slide and you will have a better chance of cutting behind for a back-door opportunity when the defender looks away. Your players should be taught to use a v-cut from center to pop out and get a pass as your team moves the ball around. This move will just get them closer.
On the Crease: Move to Confuse
Crease play works best when feeds are coming from behind or adjacent to the goal. Feeds from up top force the recipient to turn away from the goal and then back to it, wasting valuable time. Plus, it leaves your player vulnerable to trail checks and defenders closing in on the crease.
