Center Zone Dribble & Pass (20 mins)

Center Zone Dribble & Pass: On a 25x25 square, have the players in partners spread around the outside of the square. The first player in each group dribbles to the central zone, performs the turning skill demonstrated, and passes the ball back to their partner. The Partner now using the receiving technique to collect the ball controls the ball and then repeats the sequence. Make sure you use each of the different turning moves.

Dribbling Skills to review: (zig-zag, roll, inside-outside), inside chop turn, outside chop turn, pull-back turn.)

•What does your foot look like when receiving a pass?

•What should you do after you pass?

•Progress so they dribble through the zone and pass to a new person

3v2 (25 mins)

3v2, or 4v3 attacking two small goals: Set up two fields if needed so no kids are sitting out. The field should be approximately 30 yards long x 25 yards wide with two small goals or gates on each end line. Players compete in a Number’s Up setting (Play 3v2 or 4v3 opposed to just 2v2) and score a point by passing or dribbling the ball through one of the goals/gates. Make sure you rotate the team that is short.

•Encourage and Praise good passes/receiving with movement

•Encourage and Praise their movement after they make a pass

•Demonstrate some basic movements that could help players off the ball
