Through the Gate

Purpose of the Drill:

This drill helps players improve ball handing, their reflexes, and their trickery.

How it Works:

  • Set up two gates (gate width and distance from gates to suit your sport).
  • One player guards each gate. Players take it, in turn, to pass/shoot the ball through the opposite player’s gate.
  • The defending player must stop, control and take possession of the ball within one meter of initial contact with the ball.
  • If the defending player allows the ball to go through the gate, or cannot take control of the ball within 1 metre of making contact with the ball, the attacking player is awarded a point.
  • If the ball travels over the player’s head or outside of the gate, the attacking player’s attempt is declared a dead ball and no points are awarded.
  • Players take it, in turn, to attack and defend.
  • The first player to 3 points is declared the winner.

Coaching Tips:

  • Defending players should watch for body movements that give an indication of shot direction.
  • Defending players should watch the ball all the way into their possession.
  • Defending players should have weight on their toes, in a position ready to move and react quickly.
