Change of Direction (15 mins)

Change of Direction Progression:

Set-up: (Don't need to put all the cones if you don't want to. Just have them partner up on a line with one ball. Players dribble 5-7 yards out and do the specified cut, dribble back to start of line and do the same cut, dribble back up and cut one last time before giving it to the partner. Players are to perform 3 changes of directions before giving it to partner.)

Olders: Add FAKE SHOT to every cut for olders.

1) step on, inside cut, outside cut, sole across, sole behind, cruyffs, overs

2) slap cut, outside cut + sole behind drag, over+sole-v+cruyff

Coaching Points: Focus on one change of direction at a time. They need to master that one change of direction before moving on. Can you add a fake cut to your cuts? What should you do once you cut the ball. Explode???

1) Three players pass and turn to the fourth player who then takes the ball around the cone and dribbles at speed for 10 yards and shoots. Players move up one position with the shooter moving to the start position. Players need to PEEL OFF the cone to receive ball with hips open.

2v2 Flying Changes (15 mins)

Progression: 2v2+1. Two touch game.

Coaching Points: Speed of Play. Facilitate them to make decisions as to when to go and how quickly to go. At first will need to remind them but eventually you want them to be dribbling in without you telling them. Dribble into grid with pace and purpose. Empower them to go on their own. Not commanding them.

Coaching points: *****LET THEM PLAY!!!! DONT STOP IT EVERY TWO SECONDS AND DONT OVER COACH. LET THEM PLAY AND MAKE ONE OR TWO FREEZES. COACH IN THE FLOW AND IN NATURAL STOPPAGES!!!!!!

#1: Role of the Goal Keeper: keepers should learn how to support the back line in possession, how to distribute and be the first line of attack instead of just punt the ball long. Keepers need to learn to pass the ball on goal kicks rather than just kick it long.

#4&5: Role of the Center Backs: The back line plays a vital role in possession. The defenders need to learn how to support the midfield in possession, how to make the field big and how to help relieve pressure. The defense also plays a crucial role in switching the point of attack.

#6 Role of the Defensive Midfield: the number 6 player dictates the rhythm of possession. He needs to learn how to support the attack from behind the ball.

#2&3 Role of the Wide Players: Players 2 & 3 provide width and penetration. They need to learn to stay wide and open body to the field and provide support to the midfielders.

#9 Role of the Center Forward: Player 9 provides depth and an outlet from high pressing opponents. She needs to learn to stretch the field and stay high and central and be available for the long pass option from the back.
