Turning Warmup

I like this turning warmup near the beginning of the session. Gets the players passing, receiving, dribbling, running with the ball, turning and checking their shoulders.

Instructions:

1. Have an even amount of players on the outside circle and in the square within.
2. Players on the inside must dribble through the square and find a man on the outside, pass him the ball and make a run.
3. After he makes a small run he receives the ball back from the player on the outside.
4. He then must go through the inside square again and find a new player. Speed 1 before the square and Speed 2 through the square.
5. After 45-60 seconds rotate the players on the outside with the players on the inside for the next interval of this turning warmup.

Coaching Points:

1. Tempo.
2. Shoulder Checks (Awareness).
3. Passing and Receiving.
4. First Touch.
5. Ball Control.
6. Type of Turns.
