The player walks anticlockwise in an imaginary circle 8 to 10m across with the ball at their feet using alternate feet to control the ball.


The coach as in drill 6 encourages them to look up and look around them only occasionally glancing a the ball. When the player reaches half way round the circle they stop, place the right foot on the ball and pivot backwards pulling the ball round in a small circle until they are facing the origninal direction. They continue round repeated at each half circle for three complete circles.

Then change direction and walk in a clockwise circle. Stopping and pivoting round with the sole of the left foot pulling the ball round. The coach encourages the player to look up and around rather than at the ball at all times.

This can be progessed by jogging round the circle.
