Follow the Coach (10 mins)

Organization:

- Players in a circle all facing coach. (Use center circle of field if possible)

- Each player has a ball and cone to work with

Instructions:

- Coach demonstrates a ball mastery technique, and the players repeat.

- Skills taught in this session are the scissors and stepovers

Coaching Points:

- Always light on toes

- Use shoulder to fake the defender to go one way.

- Exaggerate the move to make it effective.

Progressions:

- Combine the skills together to challenge players.

- Have the players race to complete 20 times the skill learned

- The coach continuously changes what ball mastery techniques he is executing and the player must change ASAP with him (now they are forced to look up at coach and not down at ball to keep up with him)

Fake defender out (15 mins)

Organization:

- Set up two lines of cones of different color.

- Players will pair up and join another pair that will work with the cones.

- Set up as many stations as necessary.

- Players on outside of stations will act as referees

Instructions:

- 1 player is attacker, his partner the defender

- The attacker must look to use ball mastery techniques to stop the ball on either of his cones before defender puts his foot on the coresponding cone to score a point.

- If a defender has his foot on a cone the attacker cannot score on the corresponding cone and must change direction toward the opposite cone.

- The defender is not allowed to touch either the attacker or ball

- The game ends once either a point is scored by the attacker, or the attacker dribbles past the end cones or over to the defenders side, or the attacker places the ball on his cone after the defender places his foot on the corresponding cone.

- The referees are there to judge who made it to the cone first and when the game is over they become the compeating pair. After each rotation the attackers become defenders and vice versa.

Coaching Points:

- Use the ball mastery techniques to change direction quickly.

- 'Sell' the skills to fake out the defenders into going into the wrong direction

- Try to look at the defenders body position/weight and change direction at correct moments (when defenders hips turned fully commited to 1 direction/cone).

- Change of speed.
