Warm-Up: Technical Box (20 mins)

Description

25x30. All players have a ball. Push them to get as many touches as possible. I usually have them work at a high intensity for 90 seconds and then rest for 30 seconds. For example: How many touches can you get? I don't like this as it is open ended. I prefer to tell them, "Get 100 touches" in 90 seconds so that their is a clear goal. Having them take a touch and then a step is vital.

We want to make sure that each player can now perform: Scissors, Drag back / Magic Turn and another of your choosing.

Progressions

Take ____ amount of touches, and then:

- Toe taps

- Foundations

- Turn and Explode

Coaching Points

Good contact with the ball

Knees bent a little / low center of gravity

Accelerate after turning

Use the weak foot

Head up

Activity 2: 1v1 Barcelona (20 mins)

Competitive Cauldron -- 1v1 (to 2v2 if we have time)

This is a scalable high-pressure game that can be adjusted to present many different challenges to players, forcing them to continuously find new soccer solutions on the fly.

Organization:

20x10 yard space divided and marked out into 4 adjacent 5x10 yard spaces as shown

8 players divided into 4 pairs

4 balls

Cone Goals

Fours games of 1v1 are played simultaneously, one in each section. Players try to score as many times as possible in 1 minute. Score by dribbling over the end line. Notice how the red cones goals are split in two by a yellow cone. We expect that a defender can only block 1 side of the goal. In Example 'A' you see a player beat his defender in front. This awards 1 goal. If a player can beat a defender behind (Example 'B') they are awarded 2 points.

After each 1-minute game, players rotate so that each one is facing a new opponent. Each player play 4 games, thus playing each opponent from the other team once. After a quick water break, players return to play 2v2 to 4 goals, with two playing areas combine to form 1 larger space. 2 games of 2v2 are played side by side. Play 2-minute games before switching teams.

Key Points

Adjust speed of dribble

High quality skill moves to beat defender
