Clean Your Room (10 mins)

Organization:

- Create a grid that is approximately 15 X 15 yards. You should adjust the size of the grid depending on the size, skill set, and number of players.

- Every player other than the room cleaner needs a ball and will be dribbling around in the grid.

- The coach should release the room cleaner into the grid.

- The room cleaner's job is to steal the ball from the dribbling players and kick the ball out of the grid.

- The dribblers must retrieve their balls and attempt to get back into the grid as quickly as possible.

- The room is "clean" once they have all of the balls out of the grid at one time.

- If a player is struggling to clean their room, release a 2nd room cleaner to assist.

Progressions:

- Start with 2 room cleaners (defenders).

- Make the players do 10 jumping jacks before entering the grid. This will give the defender a bit more time to clear other balls out of the grid.

Coaching Points:

- Instruct the room cleaner (defender) to pressure players with the ball quickly and kick the ball out of the grid as far as possible.

- Dribblers must be aware of the defender (pressure) and remain calm and protect the ball or dribble away from pressure.

- attacking mentality

- team defending (everyone is behind the ball when it's lost)

- game management when in possession (don't simply kick it away)

- urgency to score when behind
