Finding the Ground Technique

Skill - Finding front

  1. Pad Work (using bump pads)
    1. Bump – land short / elbows & knees (no resistance) – Play the ball
    2. Bump and spin – find the ground – Play the ball
    3. Bump – leg drive – find the ground - Play the ball
  2. Above activities using 2 pads (2 defenders)

Allow players to explore which method best suits so they may find the ground quickly.

Safe landing - encourage your players to land safely by finding their front (elbow / forearms and knees).

This will also assist in the player's preparation for a better play the ball.
