Warm-Up: Sharks n' Minnows (5 mins)

Description

Players start at one side of the field and must dribble to the opposite side without their ball being stolen. You can increase success by making the Sharks also have to dribble a ball while they attempt to stop the Minnows from crossing.

Coaching Points

Controlled dribbling: Slow and steady until there is pressure, then use a bigger touch diagonally forward.

Activity 1: Technical Box (10 mins)

Description

Players are asked to dribble into and around the space using different techniques:

Right foot only, Left foot only, Laces only, Inside only, Outside only, Sole only.

Every 30 seconds have the players perform 10 toe-taps or 10 foundations.

Introduce a move: 'The Scissor'. Continue dribbling, every 5 touches they then must perform the move.

Coaching Points

Technique is the most important thing, touches must be high quality and quantity.

Toe pointing to the ground when dribbling with laces. It's more of a push than a kick.

Keep the head up whenever possible, we have to survey our surroundings.

Activity 2: Relay Races

Description

Split group into 4. Players must race around the cones using the different surfaces of their feet. They must determine how fast to go while keeping control of the ball. Each player must take 10 touches before and after the cone.

If possible, progress to having the kids perform a scissor as they approach the cone. It's important to promote the use of the moves we are teaching them in different situations.

Coaching Points

Keep the ball close

Go at a comfortable speed

Don't take 1 big touch and then 9 quick little ones, it should be fluent touches.
