Hurry Up to Slow Down (20 mins)

Equipment:

-3 seperate grids 15x15 yards (at least 20 yards inbetween grids)

-Each grid with cones randomly placed inside

-Each player with a ball

Organization:

-Players start in one of the grids with their ball dribbling around the space using small controlled touches. Any time a coach catches a ball touching a cone the player has to do 3 toe touches.

-On coaches command all players must move the grid called out. Coaches can either number the grids, use different colored cones or have players name them using a topic (super heros or soccer players names). ((I like using numbers and making them solve math problems to figure is out))

-Touches inbetween grids should be long (open space) touches then controlled as they enter the new grid.

Coaching Points:

-Using different kind of touches players must know when and where they can use them.

-Good first touch is important when moving to long touch.

-Encourage players to control their speed as they enter a new grid.

-Head up, head up, head up!!

Progressions in Drill:

-Add a defender in the open areas that can not enter the grids. Defender works to simply touch the ball, not clear it. Penalty is 5 toe touches and play can then resume.

-Move to where defender can move anywhere forcing player to keep their heads up and work to either beat defender or sheild ball.

Endzone Trap (30 mins)

Equipment:

-Field set up between top of 18 and midfield and both touchline.

-Endzones can be either inside or outside of the field depending on field size and age of players.

-Endzones 3 to 5 yards deep as needed.

-Extra balls with coach to be played in immeaditly if one goes out to keep pace high.

Organization:

- Teams of 3 or 4 (remeber to keep them small to create space than will encourage dribbling)

- Goal is scored when a player can dribble the ball into an endzone and stop it under control.

- After scoring the entire team must retreat to midfield, allowing other team to gain ball and work it forward.

- Play 3 to 4 minutes games or to a set score and have a team waiting to enter - either rotate teams or winner stays on.

-Play with all normal soccer rules.

Key Coaching Points:

-Players must keep head up to find pockets where they can dibble into or look to beat a player

-Don't dribble into danger (trapped in a corner) or a double team - dribble smart.

-Encourage the use of moves to beat opponent at speed.

-CHANGE OF SPEED AND DIRECTION to beat defender.
