Free Movement

Organization:

20 x 15

Every player with a ball

Instructions:

1. In the 20 x 15 grid allow the players to dribble around using Messi / Ronaldo touches.

2. (Coach) Reviews Messi / Ronaldo touches and turns we've learned in the last few sessions using the inside, outside and sole of our foot.

3. Allow the players to practice.

Coaching Points:

1. Keep you head up - Look out for other players who may bump into you. Look for open space and cut away from others with the outside surface of your foot.

2. Recognize when to use Messi vs. Ronaldo touches while performing the move. (Before/After?)

3. Maintain a low center of gravity

4.Touch after recognizing there's space - needs to be explosive but controlled into space away from players reach.

Progressions:

(P1) - 5 lives; Each players has 5 lives to start of with, if they dribble out of bounds or by accidentally bumps into another player he/she loses a life. If a player gets down to zero lives left he/she must see a coach for a technical challenge that will give them an additional 5 lives. After 2 minutes see who many lives each player has left.

Organization:

3 teams of 4 in different color pinnies (or 3 equal teams)

Red team starts with the balls in the center circle

Blue team forms a circle around the outside

Yellow team defends first

Instructions:

1. Red players dribble around the inside of the circle looking for an open blue player to pass to.

2. One yellow player will be following one red player as a shadow (passive defender)

3. Red player plays the ball into an open blue player. Red player immediately moves off the ball to present a good passing lane for the blue player and opens his/her body to face the center circle in preparation to receive and find a new blue player.

4. Yellow player (defender) follows the pass to the blue player. Once the blue player returns the ball to the red player, yellow continues moves off blue and continues to shadow the red player.

5. Each team goes for 2 minutes and then switches roles

6. After each team has gone, incorporate (P1)

Coaching Points:

Body shape/position: Get in line with the ball as it travels

Choose the appropriate surface of the foot. --> Introduce front and back foot in this activity

Head up before receiving to observe open space

Contact with middle of the ball; heel down - toe up

Movement off the ball

Decision making from all teams: When to dribble/pass?

Progressions / Regressions:

(P1) - Allow the defender to choose whether he/she wants to defend the receiver or passer after the ball has been played into one of the outside players. = Affect decision to pass or dribble. If yellow defender follows the ball to the blue player, using diagram, the blue player should pass the pass to the red player. But if the yellow defender marks the red player the blue player should dribble and take the space.

(P2) - Allow the defenders to steal the ball

(R1) - following P2; Defenders cannot win the ball

(R2) - Take away the defenders. Add more players on the outside and just pass and move
