The coach stands 6 or 7 metres way from the player who stands facing the coach but turns their head to the left or the right to look sideways. The coach throws the ball towards the player calling out "control". The player then reacts to see where the ball is and control it moving their feet to get into position if necessary.

Again, as soon as the player controls the ball the coach calls "head up" to encourage the player to be aware of their surroundings as soon as the ball is controlled but not before. The player then passes the ball gently straight back the the coach to complete the drill. The coach tells them to take their time passing it back, eye on the ball.

Do 5 on the left leg turning head to the left, 5 on the right leg with head starting towards right, then 5 on left leg, head right, then 5 on right leg, head left.
