Warm Up 1 (25 mins)

Organization:

-Every Player with ball in 20x30 grid

Instructions:

PART I:

-Players dribble using messi touches and ronaldo touches, choosing the correct time for each, ie close spaces use messi touches, open space use ronaldo touches.

-After a few minutes, challenge is introduced. Players now race to 50+ touches using Messi, Ronaldo, or a combination of the two.

PART II:

-Players dribble throughout area using any part of foot and wait for different commands

1) Change-When coach shouts change players must leave their ball and find a new one

2) Outside- When coach yells outside all players must dribble out of the boundary stop the ball and come back in.

Coaching Points:

-Head up to see available space

-Keep ball close when in crowded area (can you take a touch every step you take)

-If see good area of space take bigger touch/accelerate into it

-Use correct dribbling technique (pinky toe touches, knee over ball)

Progressions:

-If lose ball outside of area, or hit another player/ball you lose 10 counts in race to 50.

Main Theme 2 (20 mins)

Organization:

- Three lines, three cones per line, three players per line.

- Two players are located at the bottom, one opposite end.

Instructions:

- The line with two players will go first

- The player will dribble toward the middle cone (defender) and perfrom a feint to get around the cone and to the other side of the grid.

-Depending on how well they grasp the new move, can work on additional moves such as the roll.

Coaching Points:

- Execution of the feint, acceleration afterwards to beat the defender.

Progressions:

- Eliminate the middle cone, and have the line of two players, pass a ball to the opposite end. The receiver will then dribble at the player who initiated the sequence. (The passer is now a defender), and the receiver must perform a feint to beat the defender to the other side.

Main Theme 1 (20 mins)

Organization:

-20x30 yard grid

-3 defenders with pinnies in hand (shown as blue players)

-Every other player is attacker and has ball

Instructions:

-Attackers start with 10 points, defenders with 9.

-If defender touches an attackers ball or they force them to dribble outside of grid, they switch roles (attacker takes pinnie, defender takes ball) and the original attacker loses a point.

-No 'tag backs'

-Winner is player with most points after certain time period.

Coaching Points:

-Head up as dribble to observe space/defenders

-Ball close when defenders trying to steal ball, bigger touches when find space to go into

-Use body to protect ball as dribble

-Correct technique (knee over ball, pinky toes touches etc.)

Progressions:

-Use the activity to create the larger picture of asking how do we beat a player 1v1, when and where can we do this? If the players are presented with this bigger picture problem, now move on and break it down by working on different moves to help players beat defenders 1v1.

Add or remove number of defenders depending on level of players
