Instructions:

Body Mechanics

1. The first player furthest from the mid-line in each channel tries to race and fake the other player (closest to the mid-line) out. The objective is to score a point in either endzone.

2. If the attacking player (furthest from mid-line) is successful at faking the defender (closest to mid-line) and enters the zone, alone, he/she gets a point.

3. But if the defender catches up to the attacker and enters the zone at the same time, he/she gets the point.

4. Roles switch after each turn.

Technical: Unopposed

1. Practice via repetition. No competition.

2. Players will start off dribbling to the opposite endline one at a time. Once they approach the endline they will perform a drag-back to change direction and return to the starting point.

3. Progress to adding in the Pull-Push.

4. Advanced technique: Fake cross via cryuff turn.

Coaching Points:

1. Quality of first touch (Direction - towards goal, Weight)

2. Awareness of defender's position

3. Be positive, attack goal if possible
