Cross Traffic (10 mins)

Have half the kids line up along each end line. Everyone has a ball. On the coach’s signal the all kids try to dribble across the grid to the opposite side without crashing into another player who is coming from the opposite side. If players crash, they must do a skill designated by the coach (scissors, 10 foundations, etc.) before continuing. #2. Progress to having kids dribble from all four sides so that there is traffic in all directions.

•How do you know whether to go fast or slow? (Vision)

•What part of your foot will you use to dribble fast? (outside)

•Should the ball get closer to your foot as other’s get closer to you?

Coaching Points:

•Vision when open space

•Outside the foot touches to speed dribble

•As pressure gets closer, the ball gets closer to the foot

Chain Dribble (20 mins)

Two cones 20 yards apart, two players at each cone, everyone has a ball (have extras around). Dribble to the cone across from you performing the dribbling technique designated by the coach. When player reaches the cone, next player begins dribbling in the opposite direction. Continue the chain until the coach calls “time”. Have the kids try to get as many reps of the skill performed as possible before reaching the other side. REVIEW: zig-zag, scissors, stab-push. NEW: inside-outside (two feet), speed dribble under control (use laces for surface)

•How should you touch the ball to speed dribble?

Coaching Points:

•Outside the foot touches to speed dribble w/ longer touches, but still under control

1v1 to Gates - From Sides (25 mins)

Set up twofields each about 15 x 25-30 and separate the kids into four groups (groupsshould be about 3 kids).  Each group/teamsets up on one side of the one field in a single file line (off thefield).  Team A initiates the game bypassing a ball in to team B and the first players from each line play making a1v1 game to small gates (dribble through to score).  Either player can score on either gate.  Any time a goal is scored, the ball goes outof bounds, or the game lasts longer than 30 seconds the players on the field gooff to the outside and new players begin a new game.  The transition should be quick.  After 10-12 games, make sure you switch sothat both teams receive the ball to start. You can even rotate teams so that they play on both fields and getdifferent competition.

Scrimmage 6v6 (20 mins)

Facilitate the game and help with positions, positioning, and game format. Facilitate a basic scrimmage with a goalkeeper and five field players. Allow the kids to “PLAY” but give guidance when necessary. Use a “coaching in the game” approach to emphasize the topics from this week’s training. Be sure to use the labeled names for the positions!
