Warm Up II (10 mins)

Organization:

4 cones to create rectangle

5 yards long x 3 yards wide

1 soccer ball

2 players

 

Instructions:

Players set up their own area - as players arrive early they can be playing straight away

Burgundy player (attacker) is trying to cross the end line of the rectangle to score a point

If Yellow player (defender) can keep up with attacker and cross line at same time, they win a point

Attacker is trying to lose the defender to cross before they can catch up

Defender is not stealing the ball, just shadowing the attackers movement

Switch positions after set time or number of attempts

 

Coaching:

Use of body as disguise

Quick movement to score point

Keep the ball close, cannot cross the line without the ball

Ask what the score is - create a competitve environment

Organization:

30x20 yard area

Observations:

What do players do when pressured?

Are players turning into pressure instead of away, to protect the ball?

Do players recgnize space in front and take advantage of it?

Can players commit defender into protecting the wide goal? Presents opportunity for Maradona/Xavi to get back into center of field and score 3

2 goals

Multiple soccer balls

Instructions:

 Yellow player (defender) passes the ball to Burgundy player (attacker)

On attackers touch, the defender can steal the ball

Attacker cannot be in the middle red zone when they shoot

If defender steals the ball, they can score in either goal immediately (redzone restriction does not apply)

Coaching Points:

 Use 1st touch to keep ball moving

Head up to recognize where defender is

Can you score quickly?

If defender covers 1 goal, can you turn to get to the other?
