1v1 U-Turn Opposed (20 mins)

Pink team player passes the ball to the orange team player, and then makes a looping run around them to prevent the orange team player with the ball from scoring.

Orange team player on receiving the pass must attempt to score in either of the two goals, but can only do so once the ball has crossed the line as shown by the blue cones.

Coaching points:

- Can the player in possession either use the U-Turn skill, or fake the U-Turn skill to beat the defender?

- First touch key, speed to get over the line quickly

- When performing the U-Turn, player should turn away from the defending player to shield the ball while turning.
