Sharks & Minnows (15 mins)

Organization:

20x30yd grid - with 2yd end zones

Players line up inside one end zone with a ball (minnows)

Two players hold pinnies and stand inside grid w/o ball (sharks)

Instructions:

Minnows try to dribble to other side without getting ball touched by the sharks - must stop inside end zone

If ball is touched/stolen/lost, minnow becomes a shark

Coaching Points:

How do we get to other side without being tagged? - avoid/fake out taggers, find space, go fast

How can we dribble faster? - run fast, longer touches

How do make sure we can stop ball inside end zone? - slow down/smaller touches

4.Players must run into the middle to collect a soccer ball from the pool

5.Dribble this as close as they can to the Hippo and kick the ball into its mouth (parents raise and drop the pugg goal to signify a mouth opening and closing)

Coaching Points:
