End of Practice Discussion

  • When we receive a pass, where should we try and take our first touch (towards the direction we want to go next).
  • How can you see space better? (by looking over your shoulder before receiving ball, and opening body to field).
  • How can your teammates off the ball help you out when you have the ball? (by getting wide on the field and being loud!)
