Main Theme II (30 mins)

Organization:

20x30 yard area

Two teams of 6

Enough balls for each player

Instructions:

- First player on one team starts as attacker while first player on second team is defender

- For the first match-up, defender cannot go until attacker takes first touch forward

- Attacker must make it to the end-zone and stop the ball in the end-zone to score a point (can only score on offense); match-up is over

- If defender kicks the ball out of play, or prevents the attacker from stopping the ball in the end-zone, the match-up is over

- Once the match-up is over, attacker immediately turns to become defender as other team now comes out as attacker

- If match-up takes too long, limit each to 20 seconds

Coaching Points:

- Head up to observe space

- Ronaldo (laces) touches to get to end-zone quickly; Messi (pinky toe) touches if defender has closed down space

- Attack at speed, do not wait for defender

- Catch defender off-guard quickly as they transition from being the attacker
