We practice numbers-even and numbers-down defensive tactics pretty often, but what about when we have a spare defender? When you have a numerical advantage on defense, the likelihood that your team will come up with the ball is greater AND you have an exciting counter-attacking opportunity that you just can’t waste!
The Spare Defender Game creates a free, extra player for the defensive team and is designed to encourage counter-attack, communication, and double teams. Try it today!
Thank you to Mark Egner, from Dartmouth College, for providing this week’s drill.
