Receive-Turn-Play (15 mins)

Set-up: Cone A and Cone C are set approximately 20 yards apart. Cones B are set halfway between the two. Ball on both Cones A & C. 1 ball in play at a time.

Description: Player A plays ball into Player B (who is receiving the ball between two cones to promote a clean touch). Player B receives and turns, looking to Player C. Player A and Player B then switch positions. The pattern continues throughout the exercise.

Progression: Player B looks to receive the ball outside of the middle area (changing angle of receiving the ball). Cones A and C will eventually get pulled apart and Cones B (point of reference) will be taken away; promoting stronger passes and less restricted play.

Set-up: Approxiately a 35x35 yard grid. A pop-up goal will be set on each side.

Description: Multiple possession-based activities will take place within this grid throughout a 15-minute time frame.
