Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Avoid the Blob

Avoid the Blob (15 mins)

Organization:

20x30 area, can be bigger if needed for more kids

Each player with a ball

Instructions:

The coach starts out as "The Blob", players have to dribble from one end to the other without getting tagged by the Blob and without their ball going out of bounds. If the Blob tags a player or ball goes out of bounds, they must put their ball outside of the area, and join hands with the Blob and they become a bigger Blob. Players wait at the line for the next round to begin.

The game ends when there is one player remaining or all players have been tagged.

Coaching Points:

-Keeping the head up when dribbling

-Watch out for other players, the Blob, and staying in-bounds

-Change of direction/pace with the ball

-Keeping the ball close to the body

Progressions:

Instead of one Blob, players can form mini-blobs on the field

Begin with more than one blob (parents/coaches join in)

R - start without soccer balls

Nest Game (15 mins)

Organization:

Players divided up in each corner. Additional groups can stand on one of the large cones

All soccer balls in the middle - odd number of balls ideal

Instructions:

Goal is to retrieve a certain number of soccer balls, determined before the game

If all the balls from the middle have been retrieved with no winner, players may go to opponent's nest and steal their soccer balls to win.

Players alternate after retrieving one soccer ball

Coaching Points:

Understand when close control is beneficial vs penetrating open space

Pinky toe (Messi) and Laces (Ronaldo) dribbling

Head and eyes up

Awareness of opponents - where should you steal soccer balls from?

Communication

Progressions:

Fewer soccer balls - encourages robbing other nests

Make space bigger - emphasize big touches

Make space smaller - emphasize close control
