Coaching points

Drill is set up to show the benifits of carrying the ball hard to space.

 Carrying the ball as simply as possible (ie. no indian dribble) allows the attacker to look at the defender, as well as moving at a quicker speed

The attacker can now ascertain if the defender is over committing and vulnerble to a change of direction.

other types of deception can be used. eg prentending to check back but then continuing to accelerate away.

eg. "pointing at pressure" - turning the whole body to threaten the blue gate. this can commit the defender by "standing him up", then accelerate away to the red gate.
