Diagonal Dribbling with Moves (35 mins)

Setup:

Groups are divided into 3 groups and each group gets 2 set of cones (Red, Yellow). Each subgroup of 5 has one set of cones (5 players per set).

Drill Sequence:

A. Practice Moves

B. Relay races performing moves (Player in line can go after the player ahead finishes 2nd cone). First team sitting down wins.

Keys:

1. Ensure players are touching ball every step (not just letting the ball run)

2. Players are switching feet between cones (touch step dribbling with both feet)

3. Distance, players are performing moves before cones.

Move Details

***The overarching point of focus is perfecting the technique to make it as quick and efficient as possible with little to no error each and every repetition***

Outside Cut: Dribble on forward angle, cut outside and backwards with 1st touch, 2nd touch should cut behind and little forward and 3rd touch should take the player forward again. Body has to bent the entire time and the ball should move in a little circle when being cut.

Scissor:

Touch step with back bent over ball, Scissor around ball with cleats close to ground, knees shouldn't be straight, Drop shoulder on leg that is scissoring, Take out wide with opposite foot, Accelerate

Double Scissor: Same as above but start move earlier, keep moving forward as you do both scissors to not lose speed

Touch-Step Switch: Touch step dribbling with left on angle towards left side, Pull ball with toes of left foot underneath body, Take out ball with right foot towards right outside at same time stiff arming defender, Dribble away with far right foot.

Stop and Go: Dribble forward with right foot (imagine defender is beside running after player),Dribble stops ball with right foot and then steps past ball while turning hips, Hits ball with inside left foot forward in same initial direction

Maradona: Dribble on an angle towards defender, Reach and pull ball behind with bottom toes with close foot to defender (while turning/hopping), Pull ball with other foot diagonally forward using toe part

Performing Skills Against Passive Defenders (15 mins)

Set Up:

Players are working in a 15 x 15 grid

How it Works:

Performing moves against passive defenders. Defenders are working hard but they are NOT allowed to tackle the ball. They are approaching attackers at a quick pace, you can decide how quick you want the defenders to approach the attackers).

Players will work for 30-40s, then rest for 30-40s. Then players switch roles.

A. Coach will designate a move from the previous drill (can do 1 at a time)

B. Players have choice of moves practiced (can do more than 1 in a sequence)

C. Players choose whatever moves they want

Key:

1. Players do moves before the defender gets to them

2. Defenders approach makes sense (i.e. if doing outside cut, then want defenders to approach on an angle to the ball and not beside the ball)

1 v 1 Against Defender On The Line (15 mins)

Setup:

2 cones with balls on top a few yards apart on each end. Extra balls are on side for attackers to grab. Winner stays on, next player comes from side of player who was knocked out. Goals are 12-15 yards apart to allow players to build speed when attacking.

How it Works:

Players are trying to use their skill to get by defender and hit cone.A

Keys:

1. Believe in your move (some players hesitate after doing move because they don't think it will work and lose their opportunity).

2. Touch step dribble each step so ball is close for move to happen.

3. Attack with speed towards defender (for advanced players).
