Dribbling Warm-Up (10 mins)

Organization:

-Every Player with ball in 20x30 grid

Instructions:

STEP I:

-Players dribble using Messi touches and Ronaldo touches, choosing the correct time for each, ie close spaces using messi touches, open space using ronaldo touches.

-After a few minutes, a challenge is introduced. Players now race to 50+ touches using Messi, Ronaldo, or a combination of the two.

STEP II.

-Players dribble throughout area using any part of foot and wait for different commands

1) Change - Players leave their ball and find a new one to dribble with

2) Out - Players dribble as quickly as they can to the edge of the field

3) In - Players dribble as quickly as they can around the coach, keeping close control of the ball

Coaching Points:

-Head up to see available space

-Keep the ball close when in crowded areas (can you take a touch every step you take)

-If a player sees a good area of space, then they can take bigger touch/accelerate into it

-Use correct dribbling technique (pinky toe touches, knee over ball)

Progressions:

-If players lose the ball outside of the area, or hit another player/ball they lose 10 points in the race to 50.
