Conclusion

When complete rest for 1 minute Cool-down: 5 minutes 2 minutes: gentle jog into walk 3 minutes: stretching Week four This training session I am going to focus on footwork, co ordination, stamina, ball skills and flexibility. I had done a few drills which incorporate each of these points. Set warm-up: 5 minutes Drills and skills: 15 minutes Ball skills: 7 minutes Feeder starts with ball. Drops ball, as soon as ball leaves hands, worker can move forward to catch ball before second bounce. Worker then passes ball back to feeder. Feeder then passes ball over the head of worker, who then has to run backwards and catch ball before it bounces. Carry on for 45 seconds. Rest for 15 seconds then change, feeder is now worker. Repeat three times each. This helps to improve footwork, co-ordination, stamina and a balance. Fan drill: 7 minutes Fan drill (as session one) but repeat each movement four times instead of three. Same rest period. On figure of eight drill, repeat three times instead of two. Rest 2 minutes. Physical conditioning: 15 minutes Muscle toning and flexibility: 15 minutes Set of stretches:- * Calve stretch * Hamstring stretch * Hip stretch standing * Shoulder mobility * Side stretch * Upper back stretch * Lower back stretch * Groin stretch * Hamstring/back stretch Hold each stretch for 8-10 seconds and repeat twice.
