With taller teams, we often front the post. Sometimes, teams with short, athletic players will press and try to push the tempo to keep the post players out of the game.

Hi Randy,

For press breakers, you can reference this page:

Other ways to improve press-breaking is to run overload drills. 3 defenders against 2 offensive players and the offense tries to bring the ball up the court.

Against the quick player, you may want to sag off of her or have the defenders off the ball be ready to provide early help. When she doesn't have the ball, you may want to deny all passes back to her.

Thanks for your fantastic site. Using your skills and drills, inbound plays and heaps of other things made my u/14 girls go from being a 5th or 6th team in the comp to playing off in the grand final!!!!!

Keep up the good work and I'll keep telling other people about your brilliant site.
