Use this session to develop your player's getting free ability, to help them lose their defender and maintain possession!
To get your players thinking about how to get free this session (for beginner to intermediate players) focuses on angled drives.
From warm up to final game your players will be dodging and driving into space, trying to leave their marker rooted to the spot!
What's in the Session?
We open with a fun game of Bulldog before then developing players' attacking skills - starting with a 2v1 practice where players will need to communicate and work hard to keep possession from the defender.
We then move onto an explosive two part angle drive exercise - getting players to practice landing on their outside foot and pushing off to drive. If your team have worked hard then you can reward them with the final modified game.
We hope you enjoy this session and let us know how it worked with your team in the comments below!
Develop your player's ability to execute quick and efficient footwork, not only when receiving the ball, but also when creating and penetrating space.
Develop your players existing defensive skills and reinforce the key defending principles of denying space and limiting attacking options to force an error to gain possession of the ball.
Develop your player's ability to execute a strong, direct and accurate pass to help maintain possession of the ball.
Develop your player's understanding of how to use their body to dominate and limit the space available to their opponents focusing on a centre pass scenario.

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.
