Paint the Field (20 mins)

3 players 1 ball. As a group of 3 players pretend that the field is a piece of paper and they must pass the ball (their paint brush) to cover the entire page.

•How can you cover the entire field?

•What part of your foot should you use?

•Is it better to stand still or be moving?

Coaching Points:

•Heal down, toe up, ankle locked foot position (check mark)

•Large surface touches ball

•Footwork to get in line with pass

•Where can you move to get open

•What does it mean to be open

Center Zone Dribble & Pass (20 mins)

On a square, have the players in partners spread around the outside of the square. The first player in each group dribbles to the central zone, performs the turning skill demonstrated, and passes the ball back. The Partner now using the receiving technique to collect the ball controls the ball and then repeats the sequence. Make sure you use each of the different turning moves. *Review the passing techniques and receiving techniques.

Skills you can work on:

•Turning; outside chop, inside chop, pull back. Patterns: Zig-Zags

Coaching Points:

•Heal down, toe up, ankle locked foot position (check mark)

•Large surface touches ball

•Footwork to get in line with pass

- First touch with purpose

3v3 Outta Here (20 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.

•How can you make that pass better?

•Where can you go so that your teammate can pass you the ball?

-did your first touch have a purpose or are you just stopping the ball?

If you have enough players you NEED to be doing this activity as 3v3 (there’s a mental abstract thinking aspect to groups of 3 that is pivotal at this age – just as much as the technique we’re teaching)

Scrimmage 6v6 (15 mins)

Facilitate the game and help with positions, positioning, and game format. Facilitate a basic scrimmage with a goalkeeper and five field players. Allow the kids to “PLAY” but give guidance when necessary. Use a “coaching in the game” approach to emphasize the topics from this week’s training. Be sure to use the labeled names for the positions!
