Turning Progression (30 mins)

Turning Progression

A) Shieldng: partner up and have players work on shielding that ball from each other. Can start with limited pressure form defender. 3 x 30 seconds each. Last two sets full pressure.

Coaching Points: Low center of gravity, shield with arm not back, wide base. Player between ball and defender.

B) Turning without pressure

- receive and turn with hips open, play on second touch - "turn"

- outside of the foot turn

- inside foot turn

- stop the ball (with side on base) and step-over (or any move) and exit

(Optional) - "man-on" lay off and peel off to receive through ball.

(Optional) - no lay-offs, but forward checks to then bends in behind.

C) Turning With Pressure Game

- Attacker (1) checks to player with ball and tries to beat defender (2) by turning them and dribble across the endline. If defender wins it, they can dribble across same endline. As soon as play is dead, now the opposite side works.

Rotation:

(1) Attacker goes to back of line, (2) Defender becomes attacker, (3) inactive person becomes defender

Scoring:

Keep track of your points. Only points awarded to attacker who successfully turns, beat defender and dribbles across the endline.

Coaching Points: Peak, protect the ball, beat defenders with turns and accelerate after

Her team must move quickly from defense to attack in a 4v3+1 situation (the blue player who jsut shot the ball tracks back as the +1).

-Practice should be continuous and uninterrupted at a high tempo. the players rest when they are outside.

Rules:

1. Only 1 player from each team is allowed in a n end zone at any time.

2. Free time and unlimited touches fro all players / Limite the time for finsihing the attacks to 10 seconds and limit the players to 2-3 touches in the end zones.
