Warm up to promote movement and ball touches

Red cones approx. 3m apart

Blues start warm-up by side-stepping from red cone to red cone

Yellow dribble through each blue line and avoid contact with blue players side-stepping

Once yellow reaches orange bollard they dribble round the outside and back to the line

Coaching Points:

Blues to side-step with weight on on front of foot and a moderate pace

Yellows must have eyes up when dribbling to avoid blues

Yellow must accelerate and decelerate with the ball
