Description

This session is adjusted and revisited based on need from winter season. When it comes to understanding the timing and recognition of a pass coming in to an open player who has space to turn- we must improve. This recognition was best when we were in the main activity, but dropped significantly during the game part of training. Push speed of play and quick decision making.
