Individual Footskills (15 mins)

Every player inside a large zone, every player has a ball. Each player dribbles the ball around avoiding contact with other players. On the coach’s signal, the players perform the footskill that was demonstrated. In between signals, the players should be focused on getting frequent touches. They do not need to run extremely fast, but they should be touching the ball very frequently.

Skills to work on: Foundations, Zig-Zag. 

 Turning: Pullback, inside and outside Chop. 

 Forward: Stab Push, Scissors.

Center Zone Dribble & Pass (20 mins)

On a 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 each of the different turning moves. 

 *Review the passing techniques and receiving techniques.

•Turning; outside chop, inside chop, pull back. Patterns: Zig-Zags

3v3 Outta Here (25 mins)

Play 3v3 (four gates), but when the ball goes out, a goal is scored, or time goes to long – three new players for each team enter the field. Have the players initiate the game with a pass across to the other team.

Coaching Points:

•What part of your foot should you receive the ball with?

•What should your foot look like when you receive the ball?

•Why did the ball get away from you?

Scrimmage 6v6 (15 mins)

Facilitate the game and help with positions, positioning, and game format. Facilitate a basic scrimmage with a goalkeeper and five field players. Allow the kids to “PLAY” but give guidance when necessary. Use a “coaching in the game” approach to emphasize the topics from this week’s training. Be sure to use the labeled names for the positions!
