The stop turn
“Use the ball of your foot to stop the ball” • “Turn quickly” • “Get the ball out from under your feet”
Set up two cones 10 yards apart. One player has a ball and moves towards the other player.
When the players meet, the ball player shields the ball from his opponent and performs a stop turn.
