1. Dribble all right foot.

- Players should be making sharp cuts with inside and outside of foot once around the cones.

2.Dribble all left foot

3. Dribble both feet and cut the ball "sole across"

4. Fake shot at each cone

Coaching points: should be dribbling around cones and making sharp cuts with inside and outside of the foot. Need to teach proper shooting technique (big toe down, pinky toe up, come at an angle and not straight on, hit the ball with the sweet spot)

Diagonal Target Game + 3v3 Game (15 mins)

Diagonal Targets Game: 10-12 players

- 2v2+1 in the middle of the field wth two additional players on each team acting as targets

- Olders: may have to play 3v3 +1 in middle. Don't want any players sitting out.

- Players in possession are trying to play one of their targets. Once ball is played they take their position.

- Play 4 minute games. Switch neutrals and make coaching points from observations.

Scoring: (youngers) get one point once they play it into target. Progress to target player needs to keep possession by connecting with one of the teammates to get one point

(Olders) get one point for going from one target to another.

Losing team has fitness!!!

i. progression: Player who plays it into target, other player needs to take target position. All need to be alert and aware of what's going on.

Coaching Points: Players need to utilize space and opening up when target gets the ball. Can they take a good first touch away from pressure? Can they receive with hips open to field?

Finish with 3v3 Target Game

7v7

Roles of Each Player in 7v7 in Build-up Phase: 1-2-3-1

#1: Role of the Goal Keeper: keepers should learn how to support the back line in possession, how to distribute and be the first line of attack instead of just punt the ball long. Keepers need to learn to pass the ball on goal kicks rather than just kick it long.

#4&5: Role of the Center Backs: The back line plays a vital role in possession. The defenders need to learn how to support the midfield in possession, how to make the field big and how to help relieve pressure. The defense also plays a crucial role in switching the point of attack.

#6 Role of the Defensive Midfield: the number 6 player dictates the rhythm of possession. He needs to learn how to support the attack from behind the ball.

#2&3 Role of the Wide Players: Players 2 & 3 provide width and penetration. They need to learn to stay wide and open body to the field and provide support to the midfielders.

#9 Role of the Center Forward: Player 9 provides depth and an outlet from high pressing opponents. She needs to learn to stretch the field and stay high and central and be available for the long pass option from the back.
