Phase1 - Warm-Up (10 mins)

Organization of Session

Every player with a ball

Split into two working groups with staff

- Group 1 - Juggling - surfaces awareness - rotate after coach determined rounds, rotate with Group 2

- Group 2 - Ball Mastery - surfaces awareness - rotate after determined rounds, rotate with Group 1

- each set is 2 minutes, rotate 1min, start - so total warmup = 10 minutes hitting economical focus with the ball using all surfaces

Round 1 - Group 1:

- Juggling all surfaces - as many as you can in a row, keeping the ball up - target 50

Round 1 - Group 2:

- Ball Mastery - Dribbling - Fast Footwork - Foundation to end line and back

Rotate Groups and Repeat

Round 2 - Group 1:

- Juggling - Laces only - keep up for as many touches in a row - target 25

Round 2 - Group 2:

- Inside/Oustide of the foot - right footed to half line (red line), then switch to left foot only - repeat

Rotate Groups and Repeat

Round 3 - Group 1:

- Juggling - Headers - as many in a row as possible, if ball drops attemt to keep up with feet, get back up to head - target - 10 headers in a row or more

Round 3 - Group 2:

- Fast footwork moving - oustide/inside alternating feet - so right/right left/left continue

Rotate and Repeat -completed after final round

Key Points

Total contact with ball individually for 10 minute straight, only rest is rotation from juggling to fast footwork/ball mastery

Prideful work and focus on the ball, body movement with the ball

Surface mastery and confidence

Targets matter - make a competition of who can get most touches juggling and ball mastery sequence

Coaching Points

Juggling - suppleness of touch, relate it to the game/context - challenge

Fast Footwork - wake your brain up, body stays in relation with the ball, we control the ball not the ball controls us - texture of touch in relation to moving - ball "paints" a new line everytime it moves and we move it

Phase2 - Technical/Tactical Application (10 mins)

Organization of Session

Organize players in a diamond shape

Balls in order to keep the flow of the activity going

Players spread out amongst starting points of activity

Key Points

Player #1 passes the ball to #2

After passing ball they jog at receiving player, who moves first touch with any surface of the foot, then passes inside of the foot pass away from pressure

#3 is the TARGET = can my first touch set me up to penetrate with a pass across the diamond, and/or pass right/left for possession.

Coaching Points

With 1st/receiving touch do players, move the ball and body away from the initial line of the pass to a new line?

Is touch far enough away we can get head up (make a decision) and be moving YET, close enough we can do something with the ball (skill - shoot, pass, dribble)

Suppleness of touch

Pace/textureof pass appropriate

Accuracy matters

Phase2 - Progression (15 mins)

Organization of Session

Organize players in a diamond shape - Same as first part of Phase2

Balls in order to keep the flow of the activity going

Players spread out amongst starting points of activity

Key Points

Player #1 passes the ball to #2

After passing ball the passer runs/pressures the receiving player, who moves first touch with any surface of the foot, then looks to either beat the pressure with penetrating or possession move to...

#3 is the TARGET = can my dribble set me up to then pass across the diamond, and/or pass right/left for possession,

AFTER ball is played out of above, passer becomes defender, repeat

Players in support can move and show based on pressure to create left-right-split support

Coaching Points

With 1st/receiving touch do players, move the ball and body away from the initial line of the pass to a new line?

Is touch far enough away we can get head up (make a decision) and be moving YET, close enough we can do something with the ball (skill - shoot, pass, dribble)

Suppleness of touch

Does their dribble/move set them up to shoot/pass efficiently

Pace/textureof pass appropriate

Accuracy matters

DO the 3 players in support recignize angle, distance and movement to support based on pressure

Organization of Session

Game

Two goals

Key Points

4v4 to 7v7

Coaching Points

Application of all as it pertains to the game context

Individual touch, surfaces and dribbling to set up the pass and now shot

Small group shape around the ball - left-right-split always, even if person on the ball does not use you

Everytime ball moves, shape moves as such

Do players recognize when to pass vs dribble to set up pass/shot
