Soccer drill procedure

Drill for learning how to turn. Turns are a fixed part of the training for good soccer. With a turn, I open up a new instance of the play by moving "away from the opponent" with the ball. This drill makes sense in the training only if turns were practised beforehand.


The players dribble towards the marking. The player turns once he reaches the marking. You will find different types of turns as an animation in the Tricks category.
