Objective: Technical practice focusing on movements, quality and speed of turns unopposed.


  • Use same 20 x 20 grid as warm up taking out middle cone only.
  • Give each player a football.
  • All players should dribble around the area and perform specific turns (ie. drag back, inside / outside hook, matthew's, cruyff, etc).
