Each player has a ball and a partner.

They drag the ball to one side and then the other mirroring each others movement

Key points

Drag the ball with feet square and the ball trying to catch the front foot but never catching it. (HINT, say drag, drag, drag, stop)

2 - Have the attacker dribble up the line to fake inside and beat the defender up the line

Unlocking the box (15 mins)

Unlocking the box

Normal field size for the age group with goals to play a game.

Split the squad in 2. In order to score, you must first unlock a box. To do this, you much use the theme of the session to work through a box (dribble through, go in and turn, go in and shield, go in and drag, pass in to play out) and then you can score. If you unlock 1 box, 1 pt. 2 boxes gets 3 pts, 3 boxes is 7 pts and all 4 boxes is worth 10 pts.
