– Players to only work in half of the goal circle.
– Defender to use a variety of movements to restrict the goalers’ opportunities to receive a pass.
– Defender should always try to avoid getting stuck on the goaler’s body, and try to get an angle, i.e. don’t get caught flat in front of the goaler, giving them an easy hold for a pass over the top. Angle slightly to the side and just off the body, to allow some space to move around the goaler and elevate for tips/intercepts.
– Defender to have a go/shut down every ball if possible. Never give up and allow an easy pass.
