- Perform a stick dink from left to right
- White cone is a defender, red cones mark the range of their stick you are looking to lift over.
- Practice running, lifting the ball under control
- The ball should bounce in between each cone
- Performing a lift on the reverse side
- Useful when a player is being channeled
- Set up a hurdle. Have the player drag the ball right to left, and then lift the ball over the hurdle
After beating a defender with a reverse lift it is important:
1.) Get back in control
2.) Cut-back behind the defender, effectively taking them out of the game.
We are practising this with just cones but imagine; the space you want to be is likely to be behind the defender you have just beaten. It is also important to regain control quickly so you do not run off the pitch or into trouble.
Changing direction with a lift of the ball over the stick. Important that the player moves there feet and body around the ball to then push of their left foot and lift the ball over the stick.
- Performing the squeeze from right to left, and a reverse stick dink over hurdles
- Performing the squeeze movement over hurdles - A useful elimination skill to beat an overcommiting defender
- Performing the squeeze movement over 2D markers - Should have a single marker to indicate where the movement should be performed - A line of markers should also be used to indicate where the ball needs to travel past
- Practising the squeeze over hurdles. - Ball is played outside the body before the squeeze then collected by the left foot and brought back under control to continue the dribble.
- Perform a stick dink while changing direction - At red cones, perform a 45 degree lift - At blue cones, straighten up
