Dribbling/Foundation (10 mins)

Organization:

Players with a ball each in a 30x20 yard (open) grid.

Instructions:

The Coach will inquire, with his players, about the dribbling

characteristics of three of the top players in the world: Messi, Xavi

and Ronaldo. The Coach will use these three players to paint the

picture and build the foundation for each player to learn.

Coaching Points:

Painting the Picture of each one of the player's characteristics:

* MESSI: Head up looking to get into the gaps using small, quick

touches with the Pinky Toe (outside of the foot).

* XAVI: Head up to recognize when there's no gaps/space, then

change of direction (12 o'clock to 6 o'clock), ball comes out of your

feet, and then head and eyes up getting into the new space.

* RONALDO: Head up to see when there's a lot of space in front of

you, then big touch to accelerate and get your head/eyes up and

attack the space.

Progressions:

INIESTA introduce this new caracter who dribles using outside inside from right foot to left foot

Spend a few minutes covering each Foundational Player's characteristics seperately and ensure the players have a good picture of the characteristics during each scenario.

Main-Theme(Turning) (15 mins)

Organization:

-Players in groups of 3-one player rests/refs the game

-1 ball per game but extras to ensure high repetition Instructions:

-Attacking player, plays between red cones-defender between the blue

-Attacking player must stop ball on cone before defending player places foot on corresponding cone

Attacking player, plays between red cones, the defender player between the blue.

-The attacking player must stop the ball on either red cone before the defender can place his foot on the corresponding cone.

-If the defender has his foot placed on a cone, the attacker must turn and play towards the other red cone. If the defender then beats him to the corresponding blue cone the attacker must turn again. The attacker keeps trying to lose the defender by turning/tricking him until thinks can score and places ball on a red cone before the defender can place foot on corresponding blue cone. if he does this the attacker scores a point.

-The active pair finish their rotation when either a point is scored, or the attacker dribbles passed/over the end cones by mistake or the attacker stops the ball on a red cone when the defender already has his foot on the corresponding blue cone.

-The defender cannot steal the ball/interfere with the attacking player in anyway.

-Once the rotation is finished the next pair who have been resting/refereeing the game become the 'active' pair, when the resting pair become active again the attacker becomes the defender and vice versa.

Coaching Points:

Use the turning techniques to change direction quickly.

'Sell' the skills to fake out the defenders into going into the wrong direction

Try to look at the defenders body position/weight and change direction at correct moments (when defenders hips turned fully commited to 1 direction/cone).

Change of speed

Use a variety of skills/turns

Take the space/use speed if get ahead of defender

Progressions:

P-Have a leader board

R-Start without a ball
