Organisation/Set Up

Practice 1 of Theme 104 Quick Feet to Finish has a physical focus and can be applied during pre-season or throughout the year. Working individually, a single player must perform forward and backwards shuttle runs between cones spaced 2 yards apart, before receiving a pass from the coach as shown.

The player must position themselves at an angle to be able to take their first touch behind the mannequin to run onto, before playing a pass to a waiting player between 2 poles positioned 2 yards apart. They must then turn to receive a second pass off either a coach or fellow player and play a bounce pass off a rebound board (or a player if a board is unavailable). To finish the exercise, they must take a strong touch through cones to finish in a 1 v 1 against the goalkeeper. Active player then becomes a support player for the next rotation.
