Our fifth technical warm up: Simply make two parallel lines about eight yards apart. Group players in threes. First player dribbles out to the line and performs a turn, then passes the ball to the next player in line who uses his or her first touch to go forward and dribble at the line. First player gets back in line behind the third player and sequence continues. After a minute, switch turns (i.e. inside right foot, inside left foot, cap or outside of right foot, cap with left foot, left-footed Cruyff, right-footed Cruyff, right-footed step over, left-footed step over, pull back with right, pull back with left….etc.) If you don’t recognize a lot of these terms or don’t feel comfortable teaching them, you can get some help from this website: http://expertfootball.com/training/dribbling.php
