Dribble and change direction

Focus on control to change direction

This is a great warm-up to get your players ready for a match or training session.

Key elements

Running with the ball under control, changing direction and passing

How to play it

  1. Arrange your players into two groups.
  2. Two balls work simultaneously.
  3. The players must dribble between the first two poles then back between the second two poles in order to make a pass to the opposite team.
  4. Get your players to run with the ball out of their feet and then slow down in order to change direction.
  5. The practice is repeated for a set time period.

    1. Each player has a ball – we used 6 balls in the session

    2. The players make one change of direction and make a return pass away from the direction of run
