2nd Phase, ball mastery/technical work

Objective: To improve our shielding and turning with the ball.

Organization: Everyone, in every line does the same exercise at the same time. As shown, set up a square area, about 25x25y, start with exercise A. The first player in line dribbles to the square and turns using a U-turn or pull back, then passes the ball to the next player. Vary the turns.. for example, use L-turns, step-overs, inside and outside of the foot. In exercise B, the players sprint to the square, turns and checks in for the ball, then dribbles back. In exercise C, the player inside of the square passes the ball to an outside player and receives the ball back. Then the player dribbles to another player on the outside. In exercise D, the player on the inside plays a quick pass to the player on the outside, then the inside player goes to a different player to receive another pass. For the last 2 exercises you can have more than 4 players on the inside/outside.

Key words: Turn, pass, play it back.
