This is a game play drill to develop the ground flick technique

Organisation

  • Divide the players into defenders and attackers
  • The attackers line up 15 to 20m out from goal, each with a ball
  • The defenders line up 10 to 15m out from goal on the same side
  • On the whistle, the first attacker dribbles the ball towards a marker directly in front of goal
  • The defender gives chase and attempts to dispossess the attacker using the ground flick
  • If the attacker reaches the marker in possession they must be allowed strike for goal unopposed
  • Reverse the roles and repeat the drill

STEP Variation

Player - Allow the attacking player to dribble in any direction and strike at any time
