What?s in the Session?
Begin the session with a warm-up that engages the players physically and mentally with practices that tests their reactions and will probably induce a few laughs with it! As the session progresses, the skill based practice encourages players to make decisive, fast drives on to the ball, working on maintaining a narrow foot base to ensure they can react and move off quickly. As we all know, within a game there are many loose balls that can be contested, this session will ensure your players are first to the ball and capitalise from these. The session concludes with a conditioned game allowing your players to put the skills learnt into practice, whilst ensuring they maintain possession.
