Catch me

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.

WALT: Defensive skills and movements
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

Evlatoin:I think I am good at staying on the balls of my feet
I need to work on my piveting because I twirl not pivet.

Feed back and feed forward: Kate: I think next time you should make sure you record on you device.
But I like the way you described in the description even though you didn't have your movie to show me.


  1. Kia ora, Harriet.

    You have told us your strength for CMIYC but not the area you need to work on. You need to add this. I know the videos have been challenging to load but you need to add this to your post. Good try, Harriet. Strive for excellence in your work!

    Ka pai!


  2. What has happened to your post today Harriet? Where is your Success Criteria? Please read through your post and fix up the spelling mistakes too.

  3. It is really hard for me to comment on your defending skills from this video, but I do agree with your evaluation! Pivoting is tricky to master, but great to see you focusing on this.
