Receiving To Dribble & Drive | Opposed Practice (44-P1)

Organisation / Set Up
The first animation (of 14) in our Receiving To Dribble & Drive theme concentrates on dribbling with the ball in 3 different scenarios to developed isolated technical ability before progressing to 1 v 1s and then important decision making to finish. With 3 zones, we have a simple technical dribbling and finishing practice, followed by a 1 v 1 and finishing practice, before a 2 v 1 defending overload to challenge dribbling players.
