Repatition Turning Techniques (5 mins)

Aim: Introductory repetition practice of three different turns/change of direction.

Turns: U Turn, Drag Back Turn, Step Over Outside Front Foot Turn.

Setup: 2 players on 4 outside diamond shape of cones. 1 central cone inside diamond shape (4 x Mannequin Preferred). players at North and south both approach central cone at the same time with the ball and execute the runs as above. after turn simply apply a weighted accurate pass to next player on the cone he started from. Then East and West go.

Tech Key Points: U Turn - slow down on approach, reach with sole of foot(right or left) to top of ball, pull ball back towards your standing foot and pivot your body at the same time to protect the ball, good touch out of feet and accelerate into space after a successful COD.

Drag Back Turn: Slow down on approach, left arm out to balance and protect, place sole of right foot on the top of the ball and pull/drag behind you down the right side (same side as foot used to drag), as ball travels back, pivot your body the same way and then follow travel of the ball with good first touch into space.

Step Over Turn: slow down on approach, whilst ball is in front of you step over the ball with your right leg, immedialty with the same foot flick the ball back with the outside of your right stepping over foot and pivot your body the same way the ball is now in travel, good first touch away and accelarate, eyes up pass back to partner.

Progression: progress all turns into one action - 3 turns each repetition of action of U turn, then drag back turn and after last step over turn accelerate to opposite cone ie: North goes south and east goes west around central cone.

Tip: Technical Quality over speed initially. Analyse and effect individuals but allow self correction. * Demo Well *

Multi Gates Competition (5 mins)

Multi Turn Gates with Limitied pressure;

Mulit gates of 2:1 ratio of players on the ball ie 4 player = 8 gates.

setup: 4 players with ball each. 2 x limitied pressure defenders. players with ball have to enter through as many agtes as possible and turn back through to score a point. If the gate is blocked by a limitied pressure defender then they cannot score and have to find a empty gate. 2 deenders in whilst 2 defeneders rest (turn about after 30-45 seconds intensity closing down) to keep competivite edge. After 3 mins stop, collate collective scores of turning palyers and swap over and repeat process. Highest collective scores wins.

Tips: players take ownership of accurate individual scores. Focus on spacial awareness, checking shoulders. Game realism! make your turn, head up accelarate into space or turn again to Change Direction!

Progression: have one resting player and 3 limitied pressure defenders then go equal numbers Man to man!
