Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Technical Warm Up

Technical Warm Up (10 mins)

Organization:

25 x 25

Agility ladder on side of your choice

All Players with Ball

Instructions:

- Coach gives verbal as players freely dribble 'on board the ship"

- Our job is to 'Swab the Deck' as a team. Challenge players to dribble in as much space as possible to clean the ship quickly

- If Player dribbles out of grid they must pick up their ball and 'climb back on board' by running the agility ladder and hopping back on board

- Once players are 'Back on Deck' they place the ball on the ground and start dribbling again

- If Coach Says 'Hoist The Sails' Players demonstrate toe taps

- If Coach Says 'Sweep The Deck' Players demonstrate ball squishes

- If Coach Says "Brace Your Ship" Players 'box out' their ship and demonstrate shielding the ball

Phase II: Blue Cones are scattered inside the playing space

- The Blue Cones are Barnacles! We have to scrape them off our ship so we don't step on them!

- Give Players 30 - 60 seconds to dribble their soccer ball over to the 'Barnacles' and pick them up

- The Player with the most barnacles wins

- If a player dribbles over the blue barnacles they need to hop up and down on one foot (pretending as though it hurt them) and then dribble and find a new barnacle

Coaching Points:

- Use the 'Pinky Toe' to dribble quickly into space

- Big Touches when in Big Space

- Little touches with both inside and outside of the foot when in traffic (other players) or near the boundaries

- Can we keep our head up to see where the space is?

- Am I keeping control of the soccer ball? Can I stop on command?

Progressions:

Verbal Commands: When Coach says

- 'Swab the Deck' Players must do ball squishes until commanded to dribble again

- "Hoist the Sails' Players must do stationary toe taps until commanded to dribble again

- "Brace Your Self" Players must pretend to shield the ball until commanded to dribble again
