Pre Drill

-Split into groups of three (extra players join another group)

-Ask one player from each group to get a ball

-Set up as pictured



-Ball starts with A who passes into B

-B then Controls, Turns and passes to C

-C Controls and then passes back


-Rotate Centre player every 1 Min 30



-Teach the 'Half Turn' and include scan over the shoulder

-Middle player receives the ball on blue cone and once he has passed the ball, receives on the other side

-Outside player who passes into middle applies light pressure to centre player and then back pedals


Coaching Points

-Half turn: Instead of standing square on when receiveing the ball, can we take it side on ? Why ? Takes less time to adjust body and allows us to see who we're playing ball to

-Scan Shoulder: Can we scan the shoulder before we receive ? Why ? In football we must be one step ahead (e.g Wilshire, Xavi Ect), We need to already know where we are going to take the ball.

-Communication: Can we say the player we're passing to's name ?
