SLOB Situations-- We love to use the 1-3-1 on all sideline situations, especially when the ball is below the coaches box. By putting our tallest pusher (X4) on the ball, we can funnel the ball to the corner or make the offense throw it all the way back into the back court. You can also spring a surprise trap once the ball is inbounded and possibly catch the offense off guard. Both coverages are show below.
On SLOB situations we our pusher to pressure the basketball and take away any direct pass towards to basket. We want the passer to have two options: throw to corner or in the back court away from the basket. Warrior (X1) splits the block player and corner player inviting pass to the corner. The Keeper (X3) can match with any player in her area and invite pass into the front court. The clogger (X5) takes away anything at the high post area.
The weak side pusher can be aggressive with any skip passes. If (X4) is doing their job pressure 1st pass, we take away any penetrating passes and offense must throw to either corner or in the back court.
If offense passes into front court, this would be a great opportunity to trap and possibly catch offense off guard.
If we trap our rule is simple: 2 interceptors (X2 and X1), 2 trappers (X4 and X3) and a goaltender (X5).
