- An introduction into the V-Drag
- The ball is moved in a 'v' shape motion, from the left foot to the right foot
- A very useful elimination skill
- For less experienced players, have them kick there right leg in an arc. This help them to understand the length the drag needs to be, while also give them a strong base to protect the ball with
- Once the drag has been complete, players should move off at pace
- Use the v-drag to elinimate a passive defender
- Perform the v-drag from the right foot to the left
- Perform a V-drag and then roll strong
- Can perform 2 practices per rotation
- V-drag from left to right at first red cone
- Roll strong at blue (1st run) and yellow (second run) cones
Moving with the ball
- Practicing moving the ball from the right to the left foot and back again
- This a dramatisation to emphasise how the weight of the player should move with the ball
- Excellent for beginners
Set up mini-gates consisting of one cone and three other cones beside one anothe (preferably two different colours).
Players take it in turn to run through the gate and then reverse stick drag the ball behind the line of cones before running to the next gate.
Moving with the ball
- Performing a diving deflection on the reverse stick side
2 v 1 situation using a quick change of pace to eliminate the defender Coaching Points Pass the ball in to the defender and get it back, picking the ball up on the move The attacker takes the ball to right then quickly turns his feet to the left and drags the ball across his body Note the change in pace-this is key to creating the space to get past the defender The attacker without the ball follows the movement of the attacker with the ball

"It is not only useful for staff who are experienced but a valuable tool for those subject staff who have to take teams."
The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
