1v1 Hiding ball to gates (15 mins)

20x10 grid with a midline (use multiple grids if necessary) On one end place a gate that attacker must dribble through to score. On the farside endline place another gate that they must pass through to score. Divide players into two groups, each group is on a corner of the grid with the goal that the attacker must dribble through. Coach plays ball in for line that is attacking. Attacker can dribble through the first gate at any time but must cross midline to pass through second gate. After a few minutes switch team gets to attack.

Main Points:

- Moves here will likely include inside/outside chop, pullback

- Dribble with foot furthest away from defender

- After turning while hiding ball must accelerate to get away from defender
