Description

This session when fully progressed covers a warm up, an endurance session, turning, dribbling/RWB, passing, receiving and basic ball control. I have done this with players from U8's to U16's and every player got something out of it despite it appearing to be quite basic.

I've put it in the ball control category as the latter progressions do require a player to have alot of touches of the ball and keep it well under control.

Learning Objectives

Technical
Technical
Look at players running technique, are they using their arms to aid their running? are they breathing properly? etc
Technical
Tactical
Technical
Physical
Very demanding drill for some players and it isn't constant velocity, speeding up, slowing down, turning etc.
Technical
Psychological
Players must be aware of others around them so as to not run into each other, particularly when turning.
Technical
Social
As a gentle warm up players could use this time to chat, as a competitive drill this could promote a desire to win.

Basic Session (10 mins)

Players stand next to each other on the white 'start' line. Upon the coaches go, players run to the first (1) line of cones, turn and run back to the 'start' line. The players continue to do this to (2) and (3).

Ask players to turn in a different direction each time they turn.

Progress the session to include passing and receiving. Split your group so that half your players are on the 'start' line and the other half at a line of cones. The line of cones you choose will depend on the outcome you require, short pasing, medium passing or long passing.

The player (A) on the 'start' line passes the ball in to the player facing them (B). Player (B) controls the ball and keeps it while player A makes a run around the back of them. On player (A)'s request, player (B) will release the ball into player (A)'s path and they will run with the ball back to the 'start' line. Swap players (A) and (B) at regular intervals.
