Warm Up

Organization: Two grids. Players in pairs working back and forth.

Instructions: Player A dribbles out with player B. Player A makes a scissors pass/inside of the foot pass to Player B. Player B dribbles to one of the next cones and performs a sisscors move before passing to the next player. Repeat.

Coaching Points:

1) Player A should angle away from Player B (drawing in the defender) before releasing the pass.

2) Nice big positive touches dribbling at space.

3) Head up, making sure Player A knows where Player B is.

4) Player B receives the ball on back foot and takes a positive touch straight to goal.

5) Timing of the run.

6) Movement based on defenders position.

7) First touch. Receipt of pass must be good enough to set player up for dribble (talk about getting ball out from under feet and shifting momentum and taking 1st touch into a space depending upon where the defender is etc).

8) Time and place to use skill moves

9) Using 2nd attacker to draw defender

10) Forward runs of 2nd attacker.
