Ball Mastery

Aim: Improve player’s ability to manipulate the movement of a ball.

Drill: Each player has a ball inside the square. Player’s begin by dribbling around the grid using different parts of both of their feet. The coach can change to the conditions e.g. only right foot, or only inside of foot.

Coaches focus on using techniques using the soles of the foot.

Key Points: Focus on correct technique before speed. Work on getting the movements correct at walking speed before increasing to a jog.

Encourage players to get as many touches on the ball as they can.

The aim of this activity is to make players comfortable on the ball so that they feel confident in any situation.

Numbers Cross

Aim: To develop players technique and skill whilst running with the ball without pressure.

Players should have their head up to avoid any collisions.

The player that just shot becomes the defender and tries to close down the player.

Key Focus: Ensure players are using the correct technique (pushing the ball with the laces).
