The coach will tell the players inside the circle what they will be working on.

Volleys with Laces, Volleys with instep, Thigh Volley, 1 touch pass, 2 touch pass, turns, etc

The cylce goes for 1 minute with players in the center resetting there each time before finding a new partner.

Bad bounces (20 mins)

THE SESSION:30 X 30 Grid with players at each corner cone. Two players in the center of the grid facing outside lines on same half of grid. Players serve the ball from their hands in an attempt to play a poor quality bounce in front of the center player facing him. Receiving player must control the bounced pass, make a turn and play diagonally to the opposite corner from where the pass came. Other player in center creates obstacle (pressure) by being in passing lane, and a distraction behind player receiving. Not actively defending.Players follow their pass.

PROGRESSIONS:Limit touches before making pass to opposite player

KEY MESSAGES/POINTS:Good footwork and body shape to receive the bad ball. Checking shoulders to find teammate to send pass across grid.
