Coaching Points

- Executing the move properly is more important than going fast. Make sure players use proper technique for each move - slow them down if needed.

- Be specific as to which foot the players uses to execute the move. Get reps with both feet.

- Recommend that no more than 2-3 moves be taught in a single session.

- Players should "explode out" of the move, dribbling as fast as possible(using outside of foot)

- Players should alwasy keep ball tight and under control.

- Players need to change direction and speed to avoid other players - no crashing allowed!!

Wrong Way! (15 mins)

Organization of Session

- create one 15x15/20x20 box

- two goals/gates 2-3 yards wide on each side of box

- Divide players into four groups, one in each cone on the endlines of the box

- Defending player (1) passes ball to feet of attacking player (2) on opposite endline. Attacking player dribbles out and lookes to score by dribbling through either gate. Defending player steps out and attempts to win the ball.

- Player must dribble through to score (passing/shooting does not count

- Player with ball should look to use a possession move to get defender to go "Wrong Way"

- If defender wins it, defend can look to score as well.

- Play continues till one player scores or ball goes out of bounds. Next players in line go.

- Two groups should go at same time and players need to navigate through the chaos of another 1v1 in same space.

Coaching Points

- Dribble at an angle (not straight at defender) towards corner of the box.

- Use moves possession moves (chop, step over ect) to "wrong way" the defender

- Dribbler should change speed/direction when throwing a move.
