Juggling / Pop challenge

Instructions:

1. Allow players to practice juggling.

2. Coach demonstrates which surface he/she would like the players to use (laces) and allows players to practice by bouncing the ball on the ground first and trying to pop the ball back up to his/her hands.

3. If this becomes to easy for the players then ask them to pop the ball before it touches the ground.

Progression:

(P1) - Pop Challenge: Players must pop the ball back up to their hands using their laces, and have to control the ball so that it doesn't go higher than their heads.

1. For the challenge the players must pop the ball up to their hands with his/her right foot, then catch it, afterwards pop the ball with their left foot and catch it (level 1).

2. After completing level 1, players must then pop the ball twice on each leg, catching it, and then finish by alternating the legs, so that the ball pops on the right and then the left.

3. If the ball is dropped, player starts back at level zero.

4. Players try to beat their latest level, or his/her peer's level.

Example: (Level 1) Right foot - pop - catch, Left foot - pop - catch; (Level 2) Right foot - 2x pop - catch, Left foot - 2x pop - catch, Right + Left foot - 1 pop in between each - catch; etc.

Capture the flag (scream jar)

Organization:

25 x 15

Each player with a pinnie (pinnie tail)

* Pinnies = scream jars *

Instructions:

1. Each player has a pinnie tail tucked into his/her shorts.

2. The objective of the game is to collect as many pinnies as you can from the other players, without having your pinnie taken.

3. If a player's pinnie is stolen, he/she may continue to play and accumulate as many pinnies as possible.

4. Each pinnie a player steals equals one point. If you end up keeping your pinnie at the end of the game that equals two.

Coaching Points:

1. Vision - Keep your head up. (1) Be aware of space and pressure (2) Check your shoulder to see if there's space behind.

2. Change in speed and direction

3. Body shape - Keep a low center of gravity to (1) shield the other players from stealing your pinnie (2) quick explosions away from pressure

4. Body positioning - where is the pinnie (/ball) in relation to pressure

4. The player on the outside receiving the ball must open up on the back foot, looking to dribblie into the space behind them.

5. The player with the ball must dribble towards the small cones and perform a turn just before touching them. (Move: Stop-Turn, U Turn, Dragback)

6. After executing the move, players must accelerate into space and dribble through the 5 x 5 center area before finding someone to pass to.

7. Each turn performed equals a point. (Individually)
