Turning;

Players start on the bottom line and they dribble up the centre doing as many turns as possible,they are encouraged to cross over the centre ie left to right and right to left to add interference.

Ask players to have heads up and scan around so they know if they can do a turn etc.

Ask the players to look after their ball with close control and quick turns.

When they get to the top of the box they peel off to dribble around some cones then back to the start and move on up through the centre again.

Coaching points
