Taking on a defender 1v1
Develop your player's ability to get free from their opponent quickly and effectively to maintain or gain possession of the ball.
Blue player 2 starts with the ball and the other two players set up a few meters away, with the defender marking B1.
When everyone is ready:
B1 should make a forward run and then perform an outside roll, spinning 360 degrees before then running into space and receive the pass.
Repeat 5 times and then players rotate roles in a clockwise direction.
Players should be running at a high intensity and the focus should be on the change of direction and pace from B1.
Ensure players are balanced as they roll and are ready to receive the ball (hands and head up).
The initial run forward should be convincing in order to 'sell' the move and send the defender the wrong way.
