Hunters (10 mins)

In a group of approximately 12 players, 8 players would have a ball and the other 4 will not have a ball. On the coaches signal the “dribblers” will dribble in the grid trying to stay away from the “Hunters” who do NOT have a ball. The “Hunters” try to take a ball from the “dribblers”. If a “dribbler’s” ball is stolen, the dribbler then instantly becomes a Hunter and the Hunter that stole the ball becomes the new dribbler. Play two or three rounds and encourage high energy from the Hunters to get to the player dribbling.

•How can you keep the ball away from the hunters?

•How can you hide the ball from the Hunter when they’re close?

Coaching Points:

•Keep body between ball and defender

•Keep ball within touching distance w/ far foot

•Hide ball until you can dribble or pass successfully

1v1 to One Goal (25 mins)

Set up two fields 15x20 side by side that share a common middle touch-line. There is only one gate or goal on each field. The balls start with the coach who is at the center between the fields on the end line. The coach will play a ball into one of the fields, then the first player in each line will go after the ball and play 1v1 to the gate on that field. Simultaneously, a separate game can be happening on the opposite field. The players must be paying attention as to what field is open, which field the ball gets played to, and which goal to score on. As soon as one of the fields is done (goal scored or out of bounds) the coach will play a new ball into the open field for two new players. Encourage good use of skills learned and proper turns to keep the ball away from their opponent. Praise good use of previous skills learned to speed dribble and penetrate in addition to dribbling to protect the ball.

•What if you can’t attack right away and the defender is on your back?

•How can you hide the ball until you get a break to penetrate?

Coaching Points:

•Keep body between ball and defender

•Keep ball within touching distance w/ far foot

•Hide ball until you can dribble or pass successfully
