Dribbling, passing and receiving (25 mins)

Purple team is passing and moving, looking to split dribbling players in the middle of the pitch.

On coaches command, players in the middle are to turn the ball and change the pace at which the player is dribbling the ball. After a few minutes, teams switch roles with the red team now passing and the purple team dribbling.

Address all passing and receiving as well as dribbling and turning technics. Encourage the receiving player to take a first touch into the direction that they want to travel.
