Receiving the ball (20 mins)

Organization:1 goal. 5 players per area, 3 areas set up like above. 30x20.

Instructions: 1st attacker starts in the middle of the 2 cones. They must check to one side, receive the ball from their partner behind and go to goal. Maximum 3 touch to receive, turn and score. Go and get the ball and go around the side to rejoin the line.

Coaching Points:

- How can you turn and take a touch so that you are going towards goal?

- Be positive, first touch forward (break the line).

- Check your shoulder whilst moving and before receiving the ball to see where the space is.

- Head up before shot, laces, strike middle of ball, ankle locked, follow through in direction of where ball is to go.

Progressions:

1 - 2 touch max.

2 - 2 players from another group to now be defenders. They must start one on each tall cone. As soon as the pass is played, they are allowed to defend one at a time. However, they must run around one of the small cones before they can do this. Distance defender is away from the cone can be changed. Emphasis on the player receiving the ball to look to see where the defender is running and go the opposite way.
