Turning - Receiving and turning (unopposed) (10 mins)

Organisation

Area: 30x30 yard area.

A series of gates (two cones a couple of yards apart) organised inside the area.

The players are split into three groups: the support players (on the outside of the area), receivers and passive defenders on the inside of the area.

How to play

The support players on the outside of the practice have a ball each and pass the ball into the receivers who try and receive and turn through a gate.

The challenge for the receiving players is to do this using one or not touches.

The receivers then pass the ball out to a different support player and then move to receive another pass.

Progressions

Blockers guard the gates.

Receiving players play 2v1 against a blocker and can dribble or receive through a gate.

Questions

What should you do before you receive the ball? SCAN THE AREA.

When you receive the ball away from your defender shouls you close your body or open up? OPEN BODY POSITION.

The support players on the outside of the practice have a ball each and pass the ball into the receivers who try and receive and turn through a gate.

The challenge for the receiving players is beat a defender through a gate to score points.

The receivers then pass the ball out to a different support player and then move to receive another pass.

Progressions

Receiving players play 2v1 against a blocker and can dribble or receive through a gate.

If players can't turn return the ball to the support player and change position.
