Have half the kids line up along each end line. Everyone has a ball. On the coach’s signal the all kids try to dribble across the grid to the opposite side without crashing into another player who is coming from the opposite side. If players crash, they must do a skill designated by the coach (scissors, 10 foundations, etc.) before continuing. #2. Progress to having kids dribble from all four sides so that there is traffic in all directions.

1v1 to One Goal (25 mins)

Set up two fields 15x20 side by side that share a common middle touch-line. There is only one gate or goal on each field. The balls start with the coach who is at the center between the fields on the end line. The coach will play a ball into one of the fields, then the first player in each line will go after the ball and play 1v1 to the gate on that field. Simultaneously, a separate game can be happening on the opposite field. The players must be paying attention as to what field is open, which field the ball gets played to, and which goal to score on. As soon as one of the fields is done (goal scored or out of bounds) the coach will play a new ball into the open field for two new players. Encourage good use of skills learned and proper turns to keep the ball away from their opponent. Praise good use of previous skills learned to speed dribble and penetrate in addition to dribbling to protect the ball.
