Centre Third Throw-in: Frontcourt 3-option

Focus
Throw-in Set Plays.
Skills
Goalie Preliminary Moves.
Purpose
When it's your throw-in in the centre third, there are specific set plays you can run. Whoever throws-in depends on whether you want to take the pass quickly, who has the best passing ability in the proximity, and whether you want to keep the front-court open or have more passing options. This particular strategy is used when the ball goes out attacking side of centre and you want more passing options down-court rather than clear-out for the goalies.

  • Setup

    Choose teams and setup as per the diagram.
  • Step 1

    [WD] takes the throw. [WA/GA] divide-up the space and make complimentary leads.
    [GD] plays back-court and offers a third option if [WA+GA] are covered.
    [C] plays opposite side for court balance, and for support to goalies in later play
  • Step 2

    Look for [WA] by default, or deepest attacker.
  • Step 3

    Next pass should find the [GS], otherwise find a feeder on the circle edge for a relatively safe third pass into the [GS]
