Only got through 3 rotations of Nine vs Five yesterday so we finished it up today. We are really emphasizing running our offense on a faster tempo and so you will see a lot of misconnects. This is okay because we are early in preseason and the athletes will adapt and put it together. "Have the patience to let it look ugly!!!"
Earlier in our practice we instructed the team on "No-Step" individual defense. At time mark 0:47 you will see the middle back make an incorrect attempt to dig the ball. Not necessarily a bad move, but less effective. After a quick reminder from coach, she makes the adjustment on the very next play at 0:55 and makes a great dig. I love this because it is followed by a little jumping cheer!
