Practice 1 (15 mins)

Organization: Players split into 4 groups, every player with ball, 20x20 grid.

Instructions: Progress through 2 different turns. Coach to demonstrate and players to practice. Cruyff Turn and dragback.

Coaching Points: Slow into turn (messi), bend knees, turn, head up, accelerate out of turn with Ronaldo touches.

Dragback - foot on top of ball, pull ball backwards across the body, head up, getaway touch (ronaldo), speed up.

Cruyff - Look as though striking the ball, inside of the non-kicking foot next to the ball, last moment the 'kicking foot' comes over the top of the ball, use inside of foot to hook ball backwards, turn hips/head to see where the ball went, accelerate away.

Progressions/Regressions:

P - Extra turns - fake scissors.

R - Slow pace down, increase space, extra demonstrations.

Practice 2 - Goldrush (15 mins)

Organization: All balls begin in the middle. Equal teams in the four corners.

Instructions:

1) Players to go one at a time and get a ball from the middle by turning with it and then dribbling it back to their corner, then next person goes.

2) When all of the balls have gone out of the middle then the second part of the game starts where the players may now go and take 1 ball at a time from the other corners. The teams are not allowed to stop the other teams taking their balls. Only allowed 1 player at a time to go and get the balls, team with most ball at the end wins.

Coaching Points: As for Cruyff Turn, Head up, messi/ronaldo to speed up, slow down.

Progressions/Regressions:

P - Smaller area, use weaker foot to turn

R - Larger area.

Progressions: Have 2 teams going against each other (opposite ones) instead of 4, larger/smaller space.
