This drill is great as a warm-up and can also be repeated for indoor training. What do we want to achieve? The players must watch the ‘silent’ instructor so as not to miss a change of direction. They have to take their eyes of their ball. The ball must be controlled with lots of feeling in the feet, when the pace is increased. When the instructor increases the pace, the ball must be driven by the players.
Without a ball, the instructor moves forwards, backwards or diagonally in front of the players. It is worth noting that in the animation that when the instructor moves forwards the players move backwards. The players are trying not to change their position in relation to the instructor. The players must stay within the room or the field boundaries.
- Dribbling with hands
- When the instructor raises his/her arm, the players must stop straight away
- The instructor does not move, he just indicates the direction
- After a short familiarisation: Increase the pace!
