On the 10th day of Xmas, my football coach sent to me.... 10 Step Over Turns
Now it's time to up the ante to get us ready for our training sessions. Keep on practising, the results will show.
Step Over Turn Allows Players To Fake To Shoot Or Pass To Turn And Explode Away From Defenders.
KEY COACHING POINTS
Check shoulder before performing turn
Practice with both feet
Increase speed as you master the technique
Set up 2 cones 10m apart. Player starts at cone 1 with ball and begins performing skill to cone 2. When player reaches cone 2, they turn & repeat the skill back to cone 1. Repeat. (If you don't have cones any object will do)
1. Set realistic & challenging time limits to complete (Example: “Must complete 1 circuit in 20 seconds”) 2. Challenge players to see how many touches of the ball they can get in between cones
1. Close control of the ball
2. Check shoulder
3. Fake to pass or shoot
4. Foot around front of the ball & across the body
5. Turn to allow other foot to take the ball
6. Explode away
7. Repeat opposite foot.
