Technical Turning Unappose (20 mins)

Equipment:20 cones, a ball for each player

Set Up: In a grid 40x20 create 4 lines 10 yds apart. Place a start cone, and end cone 20 yds apart. Place a middle cone at the 10 yd mark in each row. Place a gate of 2 cones 3 yds in front of the end cone and 3 yds apart from each other. Break group up into even lines.

Activity 1: (Cycle through stations twice right foot initially then repeat with left foot)

Line A dribbles to mid cone and dribbles around it with the inside of their foot and proceeds to the end cone. When they pass through the gate they perform a hard inside cut in front of the end cone and accelerate their dribble back around their line and proceed to line B

Line B dribbles to mid cone and dribbles around it with the OUTSIDE of their foot and proceeds to the end cone. When they pass through the gate they perform a hard OUTSIDE cut in front of the end cone and accelerate their dribble back around their line and proceed to line C

Line C dribbles to mid cone and pulls back ball and then pushes to the side with OUTSIDE of their foot and proceeds to the end cone. When they pass through the gate they perform a hard straight PULLBACK in front of the end cone to reverse direction and accelerate their dribble back around their line and proceed to line D

Line B dribbles to mid cone and dribbles around it with the OUTSIDE of their foot and proceeds to the end cone. When they pass through the gate they perform a hard OUTSIDE cut in front of the end cone and accelerate their dribble back around their line and proceed to line C

Line D dribbles to mid cone and dribbles around first half with the INSIDE of their foot and switches to the OUTSIDE of other foot for the back half then proceeds to dribble to the end cone. When they pass through the gate they perform a Cruyff turn in front of the end cone and accelerate their dribble back around their line and proceed to line A

Progression: After repetition have teams remain in their designated lane groups and perform a relay competition going through all 4 turns. I.e each player performs the inside cut run as a race 1, race 2 is outside cut and so on.

Activity -Turning Opposed (20 mins)

Equipment: 6 cones per group. and a supply of 3 or 4 balls.

Setup: Break players into groups of 4 or 5. Create a 20x20 grid. place 2 cone gates in the corner of one end line (3 yds wide). Place a cone halfway on the side line and a cone in the middle on the far side. Place a player at each cone with extras at A.

Activity: A rolls ball off foot which signals B to check away and back to ball. A then plays a pass to B and waits on their toes between the two gates. B opens up towards C and plays a pass to C. C receives and dribbles towards A. A moves out to defend. C can score by dribbling through either of the gates that A is defending.

If ball goes out or C is succesful, players move to next station (A to B, B to C, C to A).

Progression: B can become active as a wall player to be available to combine with C to beat A.

Coaching points:

Accuracy and pace of passes

Good body shape for B.

Opening up for direction to C.

C attack defender head on

Proper spacing to affect turn
