The coach stands 2 or 3 metres away from the player and throws the ball under arm directly to the player who gently volleys the ball straight back to the coaches hands.



Do 10 successful repetitions on the good foot before attempting 10 on the bad foot. Tell the player to keep their eye on the ball, take their time and very gently tap the ball back. This can be progressed by moving further apart, alternating right foot and left foot or throwing towards random feet. When the player can do 10 in a row straight back to the coach they have mastered lesson 2.
