Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Warm Up: Red Light, Green Light
Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Warm Up: Red Light, Green Light

Warm Up: Red Light, Green Light (10 mins)

Equipment

Need about half the field, set up 2 end zones about 5 yards in width, with coned line in the middle. Balls for each player on one half of field.

Activity

Players on the ball in one half, dribble on "green", stop on "red" commands. Coach introduces "Fast Lane" command in which players dribble as fast as possible with positive first touch across half line and into far endzone, where they will stop the ball. There are endzones at each end, so players will come out again but on the near half and repeat steps / commands.

Progressions:

- Coach introduces "Yellow Light" command, in which players will toe tap the ball either in place or moving forward, if possible.

- Coach can act as defender on "Fast Lane" command applying as much or as little pressure as needed

- Coach introduces "Blue Light" in which coach will act as the police and capture all the missing soccer balls that the kids have. Players will have to perform pull back move (simple drag back is fine as long as coach demonstrates it) and then have the ability to dribble anywhere in the space with the end zones being "safe".

Key Coaching Points

- Dribble with head up

- Use both feet

- Keep ball close.

- Speed dribbling should be done with laces - NOT instep

- Control ball when entering end zone to control stop and not run out of the back of end zone
