1v1 to 3 goals

In this session we will revisit the skills introduced in the last session as a way of continuing to hone those techniques.

This session will focus pimarily on dribbling to go forward.

This exercise provides many options for use of the concept of forward because there are three options towards which to attack.

The ball starts with the server playing a ball into the middle of the grid, the two players will fight for it and will need to use positive and direct dribbling in order to go forward to score in a goal.

There will be multiple games going on at the same time in order to provide traffic and increase repeptions.
