Coaching points

This simple drill is good for players to get the idea of the ball constantly travelling in a straight line.

Players have to learn to make a movement before receiving the ball.

Players should not be waiting to receive the ball, rather, be driving on to the ball. 


Players should not wait to receive the ball, rather, be driving on to the ball.

Bring in defence to make this more challenging.
