Warm up

Organization:

10x10 square. All players with ball.

Instructions:

Progression of touches:

1) 50 touches, any foot and any part of the foot.

2) 50 touches, outside right than 50 touches outside left.

3) 50 touches, inside/out right / 50 touches inside/out left

4) Every player has 3 lives, you lose a life by (a) dribbling out of the area, (b) running into somebody or somebody runs into you, and (c) walking or stopping the ball for a long period of time.

You can vary this warm up any way you want, basically getting the players to get as many touches on the ball as possible, and in a close/tight area for control.

Coaching Points:

Small touches on the ball, close control, using the proper part of the foot to dribble with, dribbling with you head up, recognizing space and players around you.

Progressions:

Make the space smaller or larger depending on the ability level of your players.

Make the touch limit more or less.

Limit the parts of the foot to dribble with (only outside, inside, etc)

Lots of ways to adapt this simple warm up to fit your players ability level.

Four goal WC

25x25, grid can vary based on ability level.

Split your team into four equal teams, or best you can.

The coach playes a ball out, and one player from each goal comes out and plays 1v1v1v1.

If your goal gets scored on your team loses a life.

If you score a goal, your team gains a life.

(you determine how many lives they start out with)

Once a team is out of lives, you close their goal... but they are not out of the game, they simply cannot be scored upon... if that team whose goal is closed scores, their goal opens again.

(some play if you lose all your lives your team is out... then last team standing wins)

Focus on players being confident with the ball, looking for open space to dribble in and not predetermining where they want to go/score.
