Individual Footskills (15 mins)

Every player inside a large zone, every player has a ball. Each player dribbles the ball around avoiding contact with other players. On the coach’s signal, the players perform the footskill that was demonstrated. In between signals, the players should be focused on getting frequent touches. They do not need to run extremely fast, but they should be touching the ball very frequently.

3v3 Outta Here (25 mins)

Play 3v3 (four gates), but when the ball goes out, a goal is scored, or time goes to long – three new players for each team enter the field. Have the players initiate the game with a pass across to the other team.

•Are you in a good position to support the player with the ball?

•Was your pass in front of the runner or did he have to slow down?

•What can you do to eliminate the defender?

•If you don’t get the pass right away can you find a new run to make?

•What run or combination will work in this situation?

Coaching Points:

- When and where to be and to pass

- How to support

- Who attacks and defends in different situations

- What does the game require from each individual player in certain instances
