Turning to Run (15 mins)

1 - Coach drops ball to signal start and the first players have to race to be the first to the red cone.

B – if the coach shouts “blue or yellow” the players must turn and run around that cone before getting back to the start position. This makes the players turn on both feet and accelerate just as they would when trying to lose a defender
