One on one in a circle (40 mins)

One on one in a circle

•The group is spread out into a big circle (likely use 2 circles with bigger groups) with 4 or 5 balls around the circle with the players.

•2 players are in the middle, 1 is given the attacker role and the other is the defender.

•They work for 1 minute against each other and then 2 new players go in.

•The attacker is to go to a ball, ask for it and try to turn the defender. They are not permitted to pass the ball to a player next to the player whom they received the ball from. Each time they can pass to any other player they receive a point, each time the defender wins the ball they receive a point.

•Once everyone has had a turn the players go in again for a second time as the other role of the game.

Coaching points

Proper check offs to create space, shoulder checks when receiving the ball, using your body to protect the ball and feel if you can turn or roll the defender, positive first touch, communication to get the ball and when passing to a teamate. also feel free to work the defensive side of this drill with talking about the angle you approach the attacker, how close you should be, use your body when appropriate etc.

Power and Finesse (25 mins)

Power and Finesse

Divide the team into 2. Coach passes the balls to the players. First shot is taken from outside the 18 (power with laces) then the shooter moves forward and takes a shot from about the penalty spot (finess, placement into a corner). The shooter scores no goals and is eliminated. The shooter scores 1 of 2 then they stay in the game and go behind the line with his teammates. If the shooter scores both then they can either save a fellow teammate who is eliminated already or challenge the other team to score both. If a challeneg is the choice and the opponent does not score both shots, they are eliminated. First team to lose all of their players loses.
