Cruyff Change of Direction (15 mins)

1) Introduce cryuff move

In groups of 3. Ball out 3 yards. Player walks to ball and gets in position to do cruyff:

+ Plant foot perpendicular to walking direction

+ Plant foot slightly ahead of ball so room for ball to travel

+ Knee slightly leaning back to change direction

+ Ready to take back ball with big toe

+ Add in a big fake with upper body to make it look like going to kick ball

+ Take ball away with opposite foot

Players dribble out and do cruyff and pass to next in line.

Switch to left foot.

Players dribble out and do cryuff while a passive defender follows. Do cruyff opposite side of defender.

Compete - iSoccer style - dribble out 5 yards and turn with right, dribble back and turn with left. Complete as many as possible in 20 seconds. Other two players count.
