Juggling (10 mins)

Start off with the soccer balls i the players hands. Have your players serve and catch to themselves. The serves should not go above their head. Once they have the correct serves can they do serve, thigh and catch, on their left and right thigh. Slowly we will work in diferent parts of each foot, head, chest and combine these. Always finish with a minute or two where each player can set a record, tell them to remember their record and try to beat it at home or at the next practice.

Warm up Race

Set up two lines approximately 12 yards apart. in the middle of these lines have two gates of different colours 2 yards wide as shown in the picture.

One player from each line runs into the middle and run on the spot (players should be pumping the arms to work on proper running technique), the coach then calls out a colour and the players race thru that color gate. When the coach calls out the color the next two players shoul make their way to the middle. You ca add activities for the players to do when they are in the middle (header, touch the ground, turn etc)

For an extra progression you can make it that if the coach yells 'blue' the players go to yellow and if he coach yells 'yellow' the players go to blue.

Receive and Combine

Set up a gate with different coloured cones (red and yellow) and that can later identify left and right.

The gap between them should be about two or three yards The player at the front of the blue line passes the ball to the player at the front of the orange line.

To begin with the have the players go to one side (yellow) for a couple of minutes, then have them take the ball to the other side (red). Once the players have the idea of the game to make it more competitive the coach calls out a colour as the ball is moving thru the gate and the player has to react the coaches call.

If you find your players really enjoying this game you could try doing opposites.

Knockout becomes Have A Ball (20 mins)

Set up small 10 x 10 square for the following activity, the space should be small.

Knockout: Players dribble their ball while trying to knock other player’s balls

outside of the grid. Players can never leave their own ball. If their ball gets

knocked out have them retrieve it quickly and get back into the game. Coach

can give a minor challenge 10 ball taps, sprint around the grid, etc.

before player can re-enter the grid.

Focus:

Dribbling,

Shielding

Poke tackling

Have a Ball: Same set-up, but now one player in each grid begins without

a ball. The player without the ball now tries to win the ball off of any of the

dribblers. If he/she does so successfully, they now keep the ball and the person

who lost the ball tries to win any of the other balls back. You must win the ball,

you cannot kick it out. If the ball is kicked out the players who was dribbling

retrieves it and rejoins the game. Game should be played for 90 seconds. Who

doesn’t have a ball at the end? Assess a minor challenge for whoever is without

the ball.

Focus:

Dribbling,

Shielding,

Winning the Ball,

Transition
