Warm up - Dribble Tag (15 mins)

All players dribbling a soccer ball will try to tag each other with their hands. Players cannot abandon their own ball to tag.

Coach: Have players keep count of their own tags, Play more than one game, have players improve their tags by at least 1 more than before

Coachin Points/Questions:

Are the players keeping their head up? Where are their eyes?

What parts of their feet are they using?

Am I able to change direction?

Can I control the ball and tag at the same time?

Technical - unopposed (20 mins)

Players now pair up and work in 2's. Player 1 dribbles and tries to lose the 2nd defender. Passive defending, the defender does not try and win the ball

Player 1 gets out the grid by passing to player on the outside - new group then comes in. Players alternate attacking and defending roles.

Vary the surfaces of the foot that the players can use:

- inside of the foot only

- outside of the foot only

- Sole of the foot

- left foot only

- right foot only

etc..

Coaching Points:

Changes of direction

Try and introduce body feignts to throw defender the wrong way

Can start without a ball to give players clear idea of getting rid of partner

Boston Bulldogs (20 mins)

The dribblers will try to cross the city by eluding the Bulldogs. Place two Bulldogs inside a 5x15 yard area in the middle of the gird. Place half of the players (Dribblers) with a ball at each end of the grid. On coach’s command, one group of dribblers will try to cross the city. As soon as one gets to the opposite line the next dribbler waiting goes. If the bulldog dispossesses the dribbler he/she switches with the bulldog.

Coaching Points/Questions:

When are the players using their laces to dribble?

Where are the players using a fake?

Am I protecting the ball from the Bulldogs?

When should I use a fake to get around the Bulldogs?
