15 x 15 grid with a 5 x 5 box in the center (as shown)

3 players minimum on each outside cone

1 Ball per group

Instructions:

1. (Coach) Introduces Inside Cut turn/move.

2. The first player in each line dribbles, using Messi touches, out to the center box which is divided into four triangles.

3. Once they reach the center cone he/she must perform the move/turn the coach has just demonstrated.

4. (P1) - add in passive defender, to encourage players to check their shoulders before turning.

Coaching Points:

1. Vision - Keep your head up. (1) Be aware of space and pressure (2) Check your shoulder to see if there's space behind.

2. Change in speed and direction

3. Body shape - Keep a low center of gravity to (1) shield the other players from stealing the ball (2) quick explosions away from pressure

4. Body positioning - where is the ball in relation to pressure; Near or far foot?

Progressions:

(P1) - While one player dribbles with the ball towards the center triangle a second player will act as a passive defender shadowing the first. The focus is encourage players to look behind them before they turn. If players become comfortable with this the defender may become active. (--> Attacking player becomes the next passive defender; Defender becomes next attacker)
