This Individual practice is focused on developing movement to receive in a 25 x 25 area, with coach working one to one with a player. Here we must focus on movement to and away from the pass, developing touch to finish in mini goals as show.

Player Focus

Movement - Change Of Pace - 1st Touch - Finish (Pass quality)


Level 1 Individual 1 a

Set Up:

Progression 1: 
Player must make movement out of central area to receive. This will encourage a change of pace from standing position.  

Level 1 Individual 1 c

Coach will now vary delivery, with passes lofted or driven on the floor. This will encourage quick feet movement away from the pass and also develops player's first touch in any which direction pass is received.

With central area split, coach can determine movement into each area. Player's touch must take them out of square to finish, encourages quick thinking and reactions to call.
