Running and scanning refresher (15 mins)

Revising on the last session, running with the ball in this part of the warm up will also be a scanning task.

Player 1 will make a movement to come off their marker. They will go through you of the coned gates to create an angle to receive the ball on the back foot from player 2. Player 2 will then come into the centre area. Player 1 will take the big touch out of their feet and move through the other gate at pace. They will lay off to player 3 who will repeat the process at the end passing to player 4.

Progression will add the cones to get the players to look over their shoulders and call out the colour of the cone held up by the non passing player.
