Global rating:


The players take turns at dribbling forward, using their left/right foot. The dribbles take place in a field of chaos, where you are not allowed to touch the other players or their balls. The players must continuously adjust their movements and ball contact according to the changing space. The players’ sense of locality is also trained in this exercise.


The coach demonstrates the forward dribble and focuses his instruction on touches with right and left foot in turns. You could work in 3 intervals of 2 minutes, where the break is used to coach the players on what is observed.


16 cones and 8 balls.

Trappings could be done with the knees, elbow, behind, or head. At a given signal from the coach, players turn while rolling the ball under their right or left foot and then continue. At a given signal from the coach, players change between going forward and backward (difficult) Work on rolling the ball under right and left foot.
