1st Touch - Turning a Defender - Skill Intro (15 mins)

Groups of Three (or 4)

Player A starts with the ball and passes to player B. Player B's first touch should be to turn the defender while using their arm to keep their defender on the opposite side. Make sure the first touch takes it wide enough to not allow the defender to reach, then pass to player C. Player C returns the ball to player A who passes back to player B.

Rotate, then change the direction so the players are also working on turning on the opposite foot too.

6v6, no GKs

3 lanes, splitting the field into 3 equal lanes and a half way line.

Attacking team can move out of their lanes to work the ball out of their half, but must go back to their lanes as soon as they are defending. Attackers in the attacking half may move around freely in their own half but defenders can not and must stick to their lane. Attackers can only score for their team once they have performed a turn on the defender. Attackers in the front half cannot pass back to the defensive half.
