Skill Training Component (20 mins)

* A GRID OF 30M X 20M, 4 SMALL GOALS AND A 5M-7M SHOOTING LINE AT EACH END.

* EVENLY SPLIT TEAMS ILLUSTRATED AS SHOWN.

* MINIMUM 4, MAXIMUM 8 PLAYERS PER GRID. IF THE GROUP IS BIGGER THEN MAKE 2 GRIDS.

* THE EXERCISE STARTS WITH THE FIRST PLAYER OF THE RED TEAM RUNNING THE BALL TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE AND SHOOTING THE BALL INTO THE GOAL. THEY CAN ONLY SHOOT ONCE THEY HAVE CROSSED THE LINE INTO THE SHOOTING ZONE.

* AS SOON AS THE RED PLAYER SHOOTS AT GOAL, THE FIRST BLUE PLAYER STARTS RUNNING WITH THE BALL TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE.

* AS SOON AS THE RED PLAYER HAS HAD THEIR SHOT AT GOAL, THEY TURN AND CHASE THE BLUE PLAYER TO TRY AND CATCH UP WITH THEM AND PREVENT THEM FROM SCORING.

* COUNT THE GOALS. WHICH TEAM SCORES THE MOST GOALS WINS.

POSSIBLE COACHES REMARKS

* PUSH THE BALL FORWARD EVERY 3-4 STEPS.

* RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN BUT KEEP THE BALL UNDER CONTROL.

* IF THE DEFENDER CATCHES UP WITH YOU, THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN DO (DEMONSTRATE)

- FEINT TO TURN AND ACCELERATE AGAIN.

- FEINT TO STOP AND ACCELERATE AGAIN.

- CUT OFF THE DEFENDERS LINE BY CROSSING IN FRONT OF THEM.

- TAKE ON THE DEFENDER 1 V 1 IF THEY MANAGE TO GET IN FRONT OF YOU (SCORING IN BOTH GOALS IS ALLOWED).

STEP UP

* NARROW THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO GOALS ON THE BYLINE.

STEP DOWN

* THE CHASER JUST RACES AGAINST THE RUNNER TO BEAT HIM TO THE SHOOTING LINE. IF THE CHASER REACHES THE SHOOTING LINE FIRST, THE RUNNER CANNOT SHOOT AND SCORE ANYMORE.

Skill Game (15 mins)

* ASSESS HOW THE GAME GOES. DO ALL PLAYERS RUN WITH THE BALL REGULARLY AND ARE GOALS BEING SCORED?

IF THE ANSWER IS NO, MAKE IT EASIER BY:

- MAKING THE FIELD WIDER.

- ADD A NEUTRAL PLAYER WHO ALWAYS PLAYS WITH THE TEAM THAT HAS THE BALL (NUMERICAL ADVANTAGE OF 1 PLAYER).

- IF STILL TOO DIFFICULT, BIGGER NUMERICAL ADVANTAGE (2 NEUTRAL PLAYERS).

IF TOO EASY:

- MAKE THE FIELD NARROW.

- SCORING ZONES RATHER THAN THE WHOLE LINE.
