Playing with the pivot

A very simple way of using the pivot is in the video below. Using the course, you can teach your players the principles of playing with a pivot and introduce it into your game model.

The pivot has to stay high and work with the opposition defender, with the aim of spreading the defence, creating space to play in. The pivot’s movement should be determined by their strong side, in this case, the pivot is right-footed. As the players in the creation zone move the ball around, the pivot has to find themselves in positions to receive the ball, or, attracting the defender (5) to them to create space elsewhere on the court.

Eventually, the pivot receives the ball on the left wing with their back to goal and holds the ball for their team mates to attack. Of course, they can also turn and shoot or turn and play the ball to the far post.
