Working Turns around a box (15 min)

Set Up:

•A 6 x 6 grid is set up and every player has a ball on a cone.

•The players must work outside the cones along the line with the idea that inside the cones are the defenders. This will force the players to use the far foot from the inside of the grid to simulate protecting the ball.

•Once the player gets to a cone they work a turn. They continue this action back and forth.

•First they turn by using the outside of their foot to turn away from the cone “outside hook”, once successful move the group on to the “inside hook” this time using the inside leg to spin to the outside and take the ball away with the inside of the foot. Next is the “stop turn” where they step on the ball and turn around followed by the “step over” which involves using the outside leg to step over and around the ball and then spinning the inside leg back where the other leg came from to finish the turn.

•If you can get through all of the turns quick enough then have them continue to work the turns but this time on your command of which one to attempt.

Coaching Points: Send eyes to the ball when touching the ball, check your outside shoulder, disguise with the turn, protect with not only the outside foot being used but with your inside forearm as well, big touch out of the turn, get the head up to see the pitch.
