Intro Activity

Players move around with a ball each encouraged to take small touches and lift the head when they can. Dribble the ball and have fun pretending to be their favourite player.

Introduce tricks and skills, asking players to pretend the cones are defenders and see how inventive they can be taking them on

Progress to introduce the V turn which will be worked on throughout the session, where players dribble to 1 side of a cone and pretend a defender steps in to win the ball so drag the ball back with the sole of the foot and then touch using the inside or outside of the foot to move to the other side of the cone, drive away with a change of pace. Players perform the skill properly if it looks like a V! Tell them the ball is a paint brush and you need to paint a V on the ground.

After plenty of repitition and chances to practice, introduce the L turn, very similar but behind the standing left, drag down and knock behind standing leg while turning and accelerating away.

Final progression, as players move around when they get to a yellow cone work on V turn and red cones work on L, coaches can be helping anyone who is finidng it tough and put some defensive pressure on the ones who are finding it easy as if you are trying to steal the ball from them.
