Intro. (20 mins)

Organisation:

- 20x20 yd area,

- 75 second rounds, 6 rounds so each player defends

Instructions:

- Players dribble from end zone to end zone while performing different ball mastery exercises and moves to beat defender.

- Which defender can win the round?

Coaching points:

- Technique to close space: fast, slow, low.

- Side on and low centre of gravity

- Patience to force error with pressure, no crazy challenges/kicking for the ball
