Warm up (10 mins)

Organization:

20x 20 area

1 player in pinny with a ball

Balls in each corner of the field

Instructions:

1 player (tagger) has ball.

Using different passing techniques player must strike the ball at other players legs below the knee

Players must be struck below the knee and non pinnie players must always have one foot on the ground at all times (avoids jumping over the pass)

It's a warmup so those players without the ball must be moving with soccer like movements

When striking the ball can we identify the appropriate technique to use

-Balance when striking the ball

-Area we strike the ball

-Standing foot where is it pointed?

- Can the players who have been tagged begin supporting ball carrier and setting up a better pass

Progressions:

- For every even player we incorporate a ball. I.E 2 players 1 Ball, 4 players 2 balls

- Players only have two touches
