-Throw in tic-toc's, toe taps, brushes, pull push

1) Change-When coach shouts change players must leave their ball and find a new one

2) Outside- When coach yells outside all players must dribble out of the boundary stop the ball and come back in.

Coaching Points:

-Head up to see available space

-Keep ball close when in crowded area (can you take a touch every step you take)

-If see good area of space take bigger touch/accelerate into it

-Use correct dribbling technique (pinky toe touches, knee over ball)

- The player will dribble toward the middle cone (defender) and perfrom the roll step.

Coaching Points:

- use the sole of the foot to roll the ball across your body.

- step around the ball (Disguise your intensions to dribble or to pass) to beat the defender.

Awareness of next action (where is the goal, space, teammates, covering defenders)

Attack defenders front foot

Positive 1st touch (drive at defender, makes it easier to unbalance defender)

Identification of 1vs 1 (space behind defender)

Cut across defender, If looking to continue dribbling

Accelerate away if looking to continue to dribble

Final touch of move bigger (allows head to come up)

Timing of Execution of move based upon space between you and the defender

Unbalance defender with body movement (Use of body to sell the fake)

Smaller touches on the ball (use of pinky toe to dribble the ball) “Like Messi” as approaching defender

Unbalance defender with ball movement

Quality of end product

Take the ball inside the opponents tackling radius

Drag the ball across the body with sole of the foot

Take the ball past the defender with inside of the opposite foot

Drag the ball across the front of the body with sole of the foot

Step over the top of the ball with the opposite foot

Carry on in the same direction as the ball

Angle of body so that the ball comes out in a forward motion

Flick the ball with the same foot which you rolled with

Progressions:

- Eliminate the middle cone, and have the line of two players, pass a ball to the opposite end. The receiver will then dribble at the player who initiated the sequence. (The passer is now a defender), and the receiver must perform a move to beat the defender to the other side.
