Description

Week 6 is receiving. We will teach the kids the correct way to keep their body open when receiving the ball in order to take a positive first touch and therefore be ready to pass quicker.

Description

Select 1 or 2 catchers. Everyone else tucks a pinnie into the side of their shorts. If a catcher grabs the pinnie from one of the Tigers, they also become a catcher. Last player remaining wins.

Activity 1: Pass and Receive (10 mins)

Description

Set up 2 different colored cones 3 yards apart. Line up a couple of players 5 yards away on a seperate cone. 1 player stands between the colored cones. The first person in line passes to the Player between the cones and calls a color. The player must receive the ball with one touch taking it towards (around the outside of) that color cone. They then dribble to the back of the line, the passer takes their place.

Can be progressed to opposite colors, and/or competition - first line to make 10 passes.

Coaching Points

Check in and out. It is important that the receiving player has enough space to be able to guide the ball around the cone with one touch - the angle must be right. If they are standing directly between the cones or too close to the, then it will fail. Have them back up.

Activity 2: Passing Circuit (10 mins)

Description

Make 2 10x10 grids, 4 kids in each. Very simple to start, one player in each corner. A ball gets passed clockwise or counter-clockwise through each player. Have them receive correctly with their first touch opening them up to their target, with the second touch they will pass.

If it is going well, have players follow their pass.
