- P1 rolls the ball to P2, then sprints to the finish line,
- P2 must stop the ball with a quality touch, then tag P1 before he crosses the finishing line.
- Have the players to push-ups or sit-ups if the ball isn’t stopped properly, P2 tags P1 or if either play walks back to get in line.
Run this exercise for no more than 5 minutes.
Switch the side with the ball half way through.
Coaching Points: Sprints
- Check P2s first touch when stopping the ball. If he doesn’t stop the ball (dead ball) he does 10 pushups.
- Acceleration – How quickly can we get to our top speed.
