1V1 Progression (10 mins)

Organisation

-Set up same the same as previous but place 1 ball a yard from central RED pylon at the side of the area..

-On Coaches command the players dribble their ball to central red pylon and stop their ball. They then dribble the other spare ball(S) back to the starting point, and stop it, and run through gate towards the coach. The 1st player to perform the above becomes the attacker and receives the ball from the coach and the other player becomes the defender. The attacker looks to try and dribble between one of the two gates set on the endline

-If the defender wins the ball he passes to the coach. Keep score and make it competitive

***Coach the attacking player BUT ``manage`` the defender. If the defender recognizes he does not receive the ball from the coach he should get goal side and attempt to win the ball.
