They do not need to run extremely fast, but they should be touching the ball very frequently.

•Skills to work on: Turning: Pullback, ½ Zico, Full Zico. Forward: Stab Push, Scissors, 1-Foot V-Pull, 2-Foot V-Pull (NEW).

On a 25x25 square, have the players in partners spread around the outside of the square. The first player in each group dribbles to the central zone, performs the turning skill demonstrated, and passes the ball back. The Partner now using the receiving technique to collect the ball controls the ball and then repeats the sequence. Make sure you use different turning moves. *Review the passing techniques and receiving techniques. Skills you can work on:

•Turning; pull back, full and half Zico’s. Patterns: Zig-Zags, rolls, speed dribble

Gates (20 mins)

3 players 1 ball. As a group of 3 players try to pass the ball through as many gates as possible. Make gates in various sizes, directions, and colors. Gradually provide more challenges for the players.

•Should you receive the ball standing or moving?

•How close or far should you be to support the player with the ball?

•What can you do better to help support the person with the ball?

•Are there obsticales or other players between you can the ball?

•Can the player with the ball see you?

•What should the third player be doing while 1 is passing to 2?

Coaching Points:

•Proper distance to support: close enough they can actually pass, but far enough away that it’s affective

•No defenders or obstacles between player with the ball and supporting player

•Supporting runs to get open; can you do this on the move
