Screen 2 (20 mins)

Session Objective:Turning in congested areas

OrganisatioSquare about 25 yds wide, box in the middle 10x10 yds.

Key Factors: Each player is named a,b,c, A passes to B who turns in the correct manner ie.check shoulder,1st touch,correct weight and direction of pass. and he passes to C. Then in reverse C to B to A. repeat several times.

Swop positions so all go in the middle.

Now the 3rd recieving player must move and make the middle player(b) look to find where he is,this should encourage the check of the shoulder.

Last progression is the 3rd player may now turn away. If so player B must go back to where the pass came from and swop with that player.

*Outside players if possible do a turn out on receiving the ball.

*Can the (B player) do a no touch turn?
