Semi-Opposed (20 mins)

Organization:

Players in groups of 4.

2 players 'active', 2 players rest/referee game

1 ball per group needed but have others close by to restart rotation quickly

2 cones of same color approx 8 yards apart with 2 cones of a different color 'mirroring' them 4 yards opposite.

Instructions:

-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:

1) Use the turning techniques to change direction quickly.

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

3) 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).

4) Change of speed

5) Use a variety of skills/turns

6) Take the space/use speed if get ahead of defender

Progressions:

-Have leaderboard, player who scores most points in his group, play against the highest scorers in the other groups.
