SKill Intro - Part 2 (20 mins)

Setup a 20x20m grid (x 2 depending numbers) with players on each corner and 1 player in the middle by the mannequin.

Play starts with B checking off the mannequin and demanding the ball from D. D plays a solid pass into B who creates space and opens up the body to receive the ball on the back foot, takes a touch and passes into E. E has a good first touch out in front and dribbles the ball back to the start. All players follow their pass (D to B, B to E, E to D back of line). As soon as E starts dribbling back to the start A should have played the ball into B from the other side and the sequence continues.

* Can you check off the mannequin to create space

* Can you open up your body to receive the ball and play forward

* Can you use the correct weight of pass

* Can you do it at speed and with intensity

Progressions:

* B now plays a give and go with the dribbling player (C or E) before they set off back to the start.

* Instead of dribbling, pass the ball in.

* A plays into B who bumps it back to A. A plays in behind for B to play the give and go with C. C than passes back to the start.
