1. This move is important if you hit the ball too far out infront of you and have to try and pull it back to maintain possession. By twisting your hips through as you pull it back, you're able to move your body between the ball and the defender. You can also modify it by faking to shoot, pass or cross before you pull it back. Useful in all areas of the field.

  2. This move requires focus, concentration and coordination and epitomizes C4's first three stages of our program - Acquire, Develop & Master. being able to bring the ball across your body from one foot to the other is a very important technique. Applying it under pressure is where the player "employs" it - the fourth stage of our program. This move requires, balance, coordination, focus, rhythm and flexibility of the ankle. The quality of the touches are extremely important as most players will push the ball to far forward and not across their body.
