Monkey in the circle (20 mins)

Organization: 5+ players in a circle, 1-2 monkeys in the middle.

Instructions: 5 players on outside play keep away from player(s) in the middle. Whoever causes a loss of possession then becomes monkey in the circle/middle. Monkey holds a pinnie and gives it to whoever new monkey is. First pass is free.

Coaching Points: Speed of play, communication, first touch, weight timing and technique of pass, and movement off the ball.

Progressions: Start with 2 touch then 1 touch.

Outside of the foot dribbling (10 mins)

Organization: Players dribbling back and forth across field horizontally. Each player has a ball.

Instructions: One foot at a time, small touches, not a race. Encourage them to get a touch every step. Eventually progress into larger touches, race.

Coaching Points: Reason for using outside of the foot, technique- starting off sideways then try to run with body position strait while still dribbling with outside of the foot, keeping ball in control/close to body, keeping ball appropriate distance away while sprinting/taking larger touches.

Hand ball (20 mins)

Organization: Two teams 4-6 players each. 20 by 30 area.

Instructions: Team must pass ball in the air using hands. When you have the ball you're only allowed two steps. If your team drops the ball, the other team gets the ball. To score you must roll the ball into the other teams net.

Coaching Points: Movement off the ball, supporting each other by providing options, spacial awareness, decision making under pressure, speed of play, communication

Progressions: Giving time restraint on how long it takes each player to pass the ball- they must say the name of the person they pass to

Coaching Points: Movement off the ball, supporting options, spacial awareness and field positioning, decision making, speed of play, communication

Progressions: 5 passes in a row is also a goal, even two goals..?
