You often hear coaches and players talk about how their team manages to get the ball all the way to the attacking circle but returns empty handed. This DVD covers a variety of drills adapted from game situation to build an attacking team. NFHCA Hall of Fame coach Bertie Landes delivers 17 drills you can use for a shooting warm up and drills that will teach you how to use small field games, and shooting skills to create a competitive atmosphere in your practices. Coach Landes diagrams each drill on a marker board and then demonstrates the drill with her team. Re-create game-like situations that will train your athletes to react quickly to scoring opportunities, deliver quick passes, rebound blocked shots, shoot under pressure, effectively receive and make passes, concentrate when fatigued, and more. Your defense will also benefit by learning how to mark, to get the ball out of the circle, to use the sideline as a defender and more. These are the same drills that Coach Landes has used over the course of her career to compile over 400 wins.
