One vs One - Developing Dribbling Confidence
So how can you improve confidence on the ball and get your players running at the opposition? Well, first things first your players need to know the basics; keeping their head up, the ball close to their feet and learning to use both feet.
What's in the Session?
To help get your team to lift their heads and play with confidence we start this session with a simple dribbling maze exercise, to get everyone used to changing direction and keeping the ball close to their feet. After this we add an element of competition, gradually increasing the pressure and challenging your players to work in 1 v 1 situations, challenging them to find the space and find their way past their marker.
Then things get serious as we test how players cope when receiving the ball under pressure with two conditioned games before finishing with a half pitch match - giving your players the chance to put practice into play.
