Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Warm Up - Ball Mastery

Warm Up - Ball Mastery (15 mins)

- Players dribble freely in space looking to perform tasks given by coach.

Messi - Dribbling looking for gaps between other players who are defenders (small touches, pinky toe, head up as much as possible)

Xavi - Whenever space isn't available looking to change direction (ball out of feet so can pick head up immediately)

Ronaldo - Looking to dribble where there is lots of space ahead of him (bigger touches, pick head up on touch, laces of foot nearest ball). Have adjacent space to sprint into and then sprint back into original area

Brush - Once players have identified space, they perform a feint before taking their bigger touch into the space.

- introduce scissors or brush depending on ability of players.

Coaching Points:

Review feint:

-Lean to one side, dropping your shoulder

-Plant the same side foot to the side of the ball

- Take the ball away with the outside of opposite foot

Scissor- Move foot around the front of the ball finishing on outside of the ball

-Drop the shoulder as foot plants

-Take the ball away with outside of opposite foot
