Catch Me If You Can- Defense

Every week we learn about skills and movement that will help us play sports. This term’s focus has been around defense. We made a video showing some of the goals we have been practicing. I have highlighted the thing I think I have done well YELLOW and one thing I would like to work on PINK.

WALT: Defensive skills and movements
Success Criteria:
Body Movement
  • Weight on balls of feet
  • Feet shoulder width apart
  • Knees flexed
  • Concentration and eyes on ball, head and eyes up
  • Push hard off outside foot and go forwards to attack pass
  • Quick small feet, stay on balls of feet
  • Arms within confines of body
  • Take feet to ball
  • Land with a SBP
  • Body angled to see player and ball
  • Anticipate pass and player movement
Restrictive Marking
  • Meet player as they start towards the ball/where they want to go
  • stay close to the attacking player
  • Head and eyes up, arms close to body to avoid obstruction/contact
  • Angle body so attacking player is ‘pushed’ away from where he/she wants to go
  • 0.9m from ball carrier


I think I need to work on pushing hard off outside foot and go forwards to attack pass. I think I have done good on looking at the ball and staying close to the player. 

Feedback and Feedforward:
I agree Sophie you have done well on staying close to the player. I think you have also done well
by pivoting in and out. Well Done!!!

  1. You have demonstrated the defensive skills that we identified in the success criteria. Well done. I think that you are good at staying on the balls of your feet so you are ready to move when you anticipate the pass. Good goal that you have identified working on. Good luck for the netball season!
