Players begin to juggle the ball in the area. Specialized chalenges appropriate to their individual skill level will be given to each player.

Progress into ball mastery through dribbling, with rules that they must stay within the boundaries of the grid and cannot run into each other. Begin to introduce Ronaldo and Messi touches, the surfaces of the foot with which to dribble the ball, and the importance of keeping our head up. Encourage specific turns such as L-turn and pull back.

Progress into players finding space on command. Any player in the most amount of space when the coach says "Freeze" gets a point.

-Add in 1 or 2 taggers who try to simply put their foot on another players ball, if they do that player is frozen and can only be unfrozen if tagged by a teammate.
