Session Plan Diagram

Coaching Points

  • Footwork before contact - Move to weak shoulder of defender
  • Hit and Pop- Low body position, pump legs - Move ball away from pad onto hip in two hands - Keep head up and look forward (chin off chest) - Free your arms and pass to support
  • Hit and Pop From Floor - Ball carrier to attempt to free arms and control ball in order to push the ball up to the oncoming support player

Variation / Progression


  • Increase the area so more space to pass around


  • Increase number of shields/players defending
  • Remove shield and have players playing full contact (condition defenders to do stand up tackles)
  • Do not tell players what skill to use just advise that they must get the ball outside of the grid after taking the contact
