Organization
Three players per ball practise turning with body moves. They take turns passing, being a reasonably active defender and an attacker who performs body moves and turns with the ball.
Learning
The players practise performing the body move while the ball is on the way to them or stopping it first and then performing the body move.
Variations
Fully active defender, the attacker turns with or without feinting.
Coaching points (here we call them SECRETS):
  • Try a body move when you receive the ball and want to turn past an opponent
  • You can perform the body move while the ball is on the way to you
  • You can also stop the ball first and then carry out the body move
  • You can also turn past a chasing opponent using the body move
  • Make sure that you reduce your speed first and that the defender is close to you before you feint
  • Get your opponent off balance when you feint in one direction with the body move
  • Feint with your whole body, using your arms to help
  • Feel free to try turning your head in the direction you are feinting first
  • Take a long, powerful step in the same direction
  • Partially angle both your body and arms in that direction as well
  • The defender will lean in that direction and you take the opportunity to turn quickly with one step
  • Dodge away with the ball in the other direction before the defender has regained balance
  • You can perform the body move in various ways, so try out the ways which suit you best
  • You must increase your speed explosively to get away from your opponent after the feint
  • You must be in balance yourself when you want to increase your speed explosively
  • Gather all your power in the leg you are pushing away with and the foot which is on the ground
  • At the same time, lean in the direction you are running
  • Push away from the ground powerfully and explosively every time you push away
  • You can also run in front of your opponent, who will lose speed
  • This also screens the ball well
  • Learn to perform the body move in various directions and to turn in various directions
  • Learn to use the inside and outside of both feet and to move quickly
