Shooting Technique (20 mins)

Players are in groups, one player from each group dribbles out and shoots before the line to try and knock the other soccer balls off the cones. If they do, they can put it on another groups empty cone if they have one, if not they wait till a team have a cone free. They only get one shot and if they hit or miss they get the ball and dribble it to the next person in their team and it repeats. The winning team is the team that has no soccer balls on their cones.

Network (Ball Mastery) (20 mins)

Players begin by standing at a colored cone. They have to dribble to the cones of the same color, constantly moving and changing direction. We will encourage them to dribble with different parts of their foot - laces, inside, outside, bottom - from one cone to another (players cannot go to the same cone as another player). What we looked for from this was players trying to make as many touches as possible in order to ensure close control and tight dribbling. We wanted players to not just go in a linear pattern but to go different directions with their ball. Once they get moving on the ball, they perform the following tasks.;

1) 10 toe taps at a cone then move to another and do the same

2) 10 inside -inside

3) Perform an outside/inside turn at a cone

4) Perform a drag back turn at a cone

5) Perform the scissors at a cone
