Technical Mastery (15 mins)

Organization:

Line of cones 5yds apart. Each player with a ball, lined up as shown.

Instructions:

The pattern is to dribble up two cones, back one, up two, back one, etc. Players will go two at a time. First teach the inside cut. Then the V-turn. Players should be trying to match their partner as though the line of cones is a mirror. (So when one player is using is right foot, the other is using his left.) Change lines after you're done so as to work both feet.

Coaching Points:

- Use your body/arms to sell the turn

- Timing to lose the defender

Progressions:

P - Balls in one line only. Attacker is looking to lose the defender so as to cut across an open gate and get past the defender, if so attacker gets a point. Defender gets the point if he gets a touch or prevents attacker from getting across.
