Technical Activity - Toss Ball (20 mins)

Using a square split the players into two groups. One group is inside the grid and the other group is spread around the outside of the grid. The players around the outside have a ball in their HANDS, and the inside players do not have a ball. For 60 seconds, the inside group checks to a player on the outside, receives a ball in the air, controls it to the ground, and passes it back to the same person. Then they’ll find a new person on the outside to repeat the sequence. Before checking to a new player they must first run through the central gate. Switch the groups.

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.
