Demo the turn, let them practice & then race.

Players take turns performing some specific turns (inside cut, outside cut & stop turn) with both feet and then returning to start by stopping ball for teammate to go.

- dribbling with foot pointed down, touching the ball with pinky toe (pigeon-toed)

- change of direction/change of pace

- after changing direction, ball protection is important (angled body shape to push away)

- after changing direction, EYES UP to see the space

1v1 to side gates 20 mins

2 teams play 1v1 to side gates. Points scored for dribbling under control through 1 of the gates.

Defenders feed the ball in to attackers. Play for set time and swap roles.

Start by letting them experience passive resistance within their own group for a couple of minutes.

Defenders are not permitted to go to ground. If resistance is too high, regress to no tackling.

- change of direction/change of pace

- get low when changing direction. Why?

- protect the ball by keeping it as far away from defender as possible. How?

- eyes up after change of direction

Game related 1v1 continuous 10 mins

Teams take turns being attackers/defenders. Attackers all start with a ball. Defenders come into the grid one by one on 12 sec intervals. If defender kicks ball off of grid, then attacker now becomes a passing option for teammates. Try to keep at least 1 ball going for as long as possible. Team who keeps 1 ball going the longest each round wins the round.

- now 1st touch becomes part of ball protection/dribbling strategy (away from pressure/protect)

- change of direction/change of pace

- be deceptive

- use body to protect the ball from defender (keep as far away as possible)

- use lots of small touches, eyes up off the ball
