Warm-Up

On Arrival

Juggling-1 juggle, 1 bounce

Organization:

-20 x 20 yard area

-Each player has a ball

Instructions:

Part 1

-Each player has a ball and is introduced to a few different types of dribbling techniques:

•Messi, Ronaldo, Xavi and Ineiesta

-Players will be asked how they might use each type, after they have been introduced:

-If you have a lot of space which technique might be the best?

-If you are in a very tight space how could you dribble?

Part 2

-Space is the same, now all but two players have a ball.

-The players with out the ball are defenders and hold a pinnie in their hand.

-Defenders are trying to simply touch another players ball with their foot (They are not trying to tackle)

-When a Defender touches a ball they take that ball and give their pinnie to the attacker.

-That attacker then becomes the tagger/defender

-The goal is to get tagged the fewest times and to not be it when time runs out.

Coaching Points:

-Using the proper dribbling technique/surface of the foot

-Looking for/identifiying where the open space.

-Aware of the defenders and other attackers

Fully Opposed

Organization:

In a 20x15 Yard Grid, players play 1v1 to two gates (Yellow & Blue).

Instructions:

-Player "A" Passes to Player "B" and then defends the two gates on his end zone. Player "B" receives ball and attacks the opposite side end zone gates and can score by two ways:

1) Attacking player can score 1 point every time they execute a move against a defender when close (example: you do a scissors against a defender, then you get 1 points);

2) Attacking player can score 1 point by dribbling the ball with control through either the red or green gates.

-If a Defending player wins possession of the ball, then they become the Attacking player and can score the same way a normal Attacker can score.

-If ball goes out of bounds, then the game is over.

-Players will switch lines after each game (A goes to the B & vice-

versa), regardless of the result.

Coaching Points:

• Head up for the Attacking player before they receive the ball to recognize what decisions to make with their 1st touch, get into the attack and when driving at the Defender.

• Use the idea of having the option of going to either gate to unbalance the Defender, namely with the Scissors move (remind players it's an easy way to score a point).

• Try to "sell" the move by using your body to really get the Defender to commit

• Can you take a big touch to accelerate (ronaldo) once you get even/behind the Defender to create seperation.

• Head up to ensure you see the gate to score your point.

Progressions:

remove gates and place goals either side of the grid as shown above (PG) for the attackers they must get passed the end line to score remove this restriction after the attacking player is showing success when changing pace after the move.
