Juggling / Pop challenge

Instructions:

1. Allow players to practice juggling.

2. Coach demonstrates which surface he/she would like the players to use (laces) and allows players to practice by bouncing the ball on the ground first and trying to pop the ball back up to his/her hands.

3. If this becomes to easy for the players then ask them to pop the ball before it touches the ground.

Progression:

(P1) - Pop Challenge: Players must pop the ball back up to their hands using their laces, and have to control the ball so that it doesn't go higher than their heads.

1. For the challenge the players must pop the ball up to their hands with his/her right foot, then catch it, afterwards pop the ball with their left foot and catch it (level 1).

2. After completing level 1, players must then pop the ball twice on each leg, catching it, and then finish by alternating the legs, so that the ball pops on the right and then the left.

3. If the ball is dropped, player starts back at level zero.

4. Players try to beat their latest level, or his/her peer's level.

Example: (Level 1) Right foot - pop - catch, Left foot - pop - catch; (Level 2) Right foot - 2x pop - catch, Left foot - 2x pop - catch, Right + Left foot - 1 pop in between each - catch; etc.

Team passing

Organization:

20 x 20 yard area set up as shown

3 Groups of 4 players (12); or 4 Groups of 3

Create another grid if you have over 12 players

1 ball per group

Instructions:

1. Players are looking to acquire points by passing the ball to every player on the team. Once each player has touched the ball the team earns 1 point.

2. Players are only allowed to receive a ball if they run around an outside cone (facing the field/ball) after they have passed the ball.

3. If the ball is kicked out of the grid, the team loses all of their points.

4. The game lasts for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes each group will compare their scores and see if they have improved or will look to improve their score in the next round.

Coaching Points:

1. Player movement off the ball

2. Specific passing techniques

3. Weight and accuracy of pass

4. Encouraging Vocal and Visual Communication

Progressions / Regressions:

(P) - Decrease the players time by 30 seconds; or tell them that it has been decreased but  stay at the same time limit = psychological pressure

(P) - Increase the number of passes they must get before scoring a point

(R) - Increase the space

(R) - Decrease the number of passes
