Dropped balls u13 girls

Hi everyone, I have a few girls in a pretty strong under 13 team who start dropping balls when the pace gets fast and furious. The main issue seems to be trying to turn and look to where they are going to pass before they've got their hands firmly on the ball. Anyway have worked on drills that slow things down but this seems to go by the wayside as soon as their is another fast and furious game. Anyone got any thoughts? thanks Rebecca

Hi Rebecca,

Please take a look at the drill below which I often use in practice to try and help my team's reactions when catching.

I also use the '3 second game' in attempt to slow down play. I get the players to count out loud from the moment they catch the ball, and they are only allowed to pass on the third second.

This often makes them realise just how long they have to stop and look for options. Hopefully this will encourage players to count in their head during a game and slow down the play.

Hope this helps!
