Exercise #8 :

2 Player Game : Head Up : Decision

As part of any session it is critical players get to play, and get to apply their developing technique in a decision making environment.

So find a game that requires Decision Making : A control touch, running with the ball and a release.  Here is an example : 

Create the space : Hit the pass

Even though the key aspect of this activity is to get the head up, watch the other player and make a decision, it is also about having as much fun as possible playing this game. This is what practice is for after all.

As with all activities, adapt and improvisation based on what you have access to.

If you would like to play a different game then that is obviously ok, but remember : All games should have an element of attacking and defending if possible, or at least the need to get the head up, analyse some information, and make a decision based on this analysis and then use on the ball technique to impliment your decision.

 

 

DO THE FULL SESSION

When you are ready and are keen to work hard , challenge yourself by doing a full circuit (3 sets each)* at as high an intensity as you can.

*(Recommended set = 1 min on : 30 second rest).
