Main Theme (10 mins)

Organization:

- 20 x 30 yard area

- Create two end zones on opposite sides of the field.

Instructions:

- When the coach yells go all the Robbers (attackers) have to make it across the field with their soccer balls without being captured by the Cops (defenders) and sent to the Jail.

- In order for the Robbers to be captured the Cops must touch their soccer ball with their feet. If a Robber's soccer ball is touched by a Cop they become a Cop, too.

Coaching Points:

- If Cops are not near, then can the Robbers take bigger touches in order to go faster.

- If Cops are near, can the Robbers take smaller touches to get away from Cops.

Main Theme III (10 mins)

Organization:

30x40 yard area

Instructions:

- Each player with their own ball.

- Coach shouts green light to go, Red light to stop (Foot on Ball) and Purple light for high speed running with the ball.

Progressions:

- Add a policeman (player in blue pinnie). If he sees your ball to far away from you he will "impound it" (kick it out of area). Only the best dribblers become policemen.

- Drive down the hill = using the sole of the shoe to pull the ball backward.

- U-turn = pullback turn.

- Add pugg goals around perimeter = when coach shouts go park, players shoot on the nearest goal.

Coaching Points:

- Eyes up looking for space.

- Slow down and turn when you get near the edge.

- Head up to locate goal.

Progressions:

- How many times/games (in a row) can you avoid getting tagged?

- How many goals do you score when you shoot?

- As a cop, how many balls can you kick away?
