Catch Me If You Can- Defense

WALT: Defensive skills and movements


Every week we learn about skills and movement that will help us play sports. This term’s focus has been around defense. We made a video showing some of the goals we have been practicing. I have highlighted the thing I think I have done well YELLOW and one thing I would like to work on PINK.

Success Criteria:
Body Movement
  • Weight on balls of feet
  • Feet shoulder width apart
  • Knees flexed
  • Concentration and eyes on ball, head and eyes up
  • Push hard off outside foot and go forwards to attack pass
  • Quick small feet, stay on balls of feet
  • Arms within confines of body
  • Take feet to ball
  • Land with a SBP
  • Body angled to see player and ball
  • Anticipate pass and player movement
Restrictive Marking
  • Meet player as they start towards the ball/where they want to go
  • stay close to the attacking player
  • Head and eyes up, arms close to body to avoid obstruction/contact
  • Angle body so attacking player is ‘pushed’ away from where he/she wants to go
  • 0.9m from ball carrier

Evaluation: I think I did well because ran in and intersepted the ball like our goal was. But next time I could catch the ball insted of hit it.

Feedback/Feedforward: Well Done Katie I think that you also need to try and
land in a SBP (Stable Body Position.) The skill I think you did well was staying on the balls of you feet so you were ready to intercept the ball. Grace :)


  1. Hi Katie - thanks for your post. How did you embed your video? It has a weird play-back. Come and have a chat and lets see if we can fix it.

  2. That video is better! I was SUPER impressed today that you came to see me before school to fix this up! Thanks Katie.

    Your evaluation and your feedback/feedforward from Grace are spot on. By jumping in front of the person receiving the ball you will be able to intercept the ball, landing in a SBP. A great next step!
