Warm-Up: Dribbling Foundation (5 mins)

Organization:

12 Players with a ball each in a 40x60 yard (open) grid.

Instructions:

The Coach will inquire, with his players, about the dribbling characteristics of three of the top players in the world: Messi, Xavi and Ronaldo. The Coach will use these three players to paint the picture and build the foundational dribbling characteristics that the RDS curriculum is built upon.

Coaching Points:

"Painting the Picture" of each one of the player's characteristics:

* MESSI: Head up looking to get into the gaps using small, quick touches with the Pinky Toe (outside of the foot).

* XAVI: Head up to recognize when there's no gaps/space, then change of direction (12 o'clock to 6 o'clock), ball comes out of your feet, and then head and eyes up getting into the new space.

* RONALDO: Head up to see when there's a lot of space in front of you, then big touch to accelerate and get your head/eyes up and attack the space.

Progressions:

Spend a few minutes covering each Foundational Player's characteristics seperately and ensure the players have a good picture of the characteristics during each scenario.

Before reaching cone, both players make the "Scissors" move with the Left Foot and push the ball to the opposite direction (Right side). Players drive to end zone and get back in line.

Coaching Points:

* Eye contact at the start helps to recognize when your partner is ready and to make a connection.

* Head and eyes up to recognize when to make the move.

* Take a small touch prior to making the Scissors move as a "Prep Touch".

* "Sell" the Scissors move by keeping your foot low and making it look like you're taking a touch with the outside of your foot (use your body to help "sell" the move).

* Big touch to get ball out of your feet to accelerate away, get your eyes up and to help make the next decision.

Progressions:

* Start with Left Foot Scissors going to the Right Side.

* Swith to go with Right Foot Scissors going to the Left Side.

* Add "Inside Scissors" (or "Double Scissors" or "Scissors Cannon") to increase difficulty.
