Pair up the players and place each player on the end line. One player will call the turn and say go.

Activity 2 - gates passing (15 mins)

Get the players in pairs with a ball. Have the pairs start counting passes through the gates.

Select 2-3 players to be the “Bandits”. They will try to dispossess the passers. If a bandit gets the ball, he/she will try to score points by dribbling through the gates.

The passers need to get the ball back from the bandit. Play 3 bouts of 2-3 minutes each. Challenge the players to improve their score.

Coaching Points/Questions:

What surface of their foot do the players use to pass? To receive?

Where is the player’s first touch going?

Player Challenges:

Am I working with my partner and moving through the gates quickly?

Are we avoiding the bandits?

Activity 3 - Castle combat (15 mins)

The coach makes two teams of 4-5 players each. The players are lined up next to the coach. When the coach serves the ball onto the playing area, the first 2 players next to the coach will go after the soccer ball and try to dribble it into the box or pass and receive the ball by stopping it inside their own box or castle. The defenders can't defend inside the box. The team with the most balls inside their box/castle wins the game.

Coaching Points/Questions:

When should the players pass or drible?

What are the players doing to get around defenders?

Player Challenges:

Am I able to pass the ball to my teammate?

Can I control the ball when I get it?
