Playing The Possession Game - Hurling13th December 2019 19:00
In order to play the possession game effectively, you need players that are really comfortable on the ball and more importantly players who can see the next play. Possession is about passing; but isn’t only about passing, it can be about recognising opportunities to risk or retain possession. Making decisions (quick passing, safe passing, soloing with the ball, shielding and protecting possession) to retain and build attacks are the essentials of playing the possession game.
Aim: The aim of the workshop is to offer coaches practical ideas on how to gain that extra percentage to bring into your games.
