About This Play/Drill

In today’s diagram and embedded video we look at a drill to teach pivoting, proteting the ball, and passing against pressure defense. The embedded video will really help you grasp the series and expand on the diagrams. We teach a pivoting sequence to back off and attack pressure defense, then do some passing work against pressure using the series of pivoting.
