Rating: 4
from 5 members ratings

Sometimes to move forwards you need to go backwards. That's why in this training session we work on the reverse turn, to give your players an extra dimension to their game.

Using this session you can teach your team how and when to use the reverse turn, creating space by using the support player and changing the point of attack.

Session Goals:

In your next match you would hope to see your players take more care of the ball - no longer trying to blindly take on defenders. The reverse turn gives your players an extra option by turning and passing the ball to a support player, the support player should then look to distribute the ball across the pitch but still in a forward direction to cut through the opposition

The secondary purpose of this session is to improve support running by the other players in your team, which will make your attacking players more confident when using the reverse turn.
