Receive and around (15 mins)

Set up a gate with different coloured cones (red and yellow) and that can later identify left and right.

The gap between them should be about two or three yards The player at the front of the blue line passes the ball to the player at the front of the orange line.

To begin with the have the players go to one side (yellow) for a couple of minutes, then have them take the ball to the other side (red). Once the players have the idea of the game to make it more competitive the coach calls out a colour as the ball is moving thru the gate and the player has to react the coaches call.

If you find your players really enjoying this game you could try doing opposite colours.

As a warm up exersize we could have our players doing different dynamic stretches after their pass as they make the run the middle.

Knockout becomes Have A Ball (15 mins)

Set up small 10 x 10 square for the following activity, the space should be small.

Knockout: Players dribble their ball while trying to knock other player’s balls

outside of the grid. Players can never leave their own ball. If their ball gets

knocked out have them retrieve it quickly and get back into the game. Coach

can give a minor challenge 10 ball taps, sprint around the grid, etc.

before player can re-enter the grid.

Focus:

Dribbling,

Shielding

Poke tackling

Have a Ball: Same set-up, but now one player in each grid begins without

a ball. The player without the ball now tries to win the ball off of any of the

dribblers. If he/she does so successfully, they now keep the ball and the person

who lost the ball tries to win any of the other balls back. You must win the ball,

you cannot kick it out. If the ball is kicked out the players who was dribbling

retrieves it and rejoins the game. Game should be played for 90 seconds. Who

doesn’t have a ball at the end? Assess a minor challenge for whoever is without

the ball.

Focus:

Dribbling,

Shielding,

Winning the Ball,

Transition

1v1 to two goals (20 mins)

Divide your field down the middle as shown and move your goals over. Split your players into two teams and have half of the line up at the centre cone (yellow cone) and the other half line up on the centre of the touchline. You should also create a shooting zone (about 5 yards) from Each goal.

The blue defenders pass the ball across to the red attackers. Players can score in either goal but have to enter the shooting zone before scoring. If the defender wins the ball the defender can score in either goal also.

Have the players start as soon as the ball goes out of bounds or is scored.

If coaching at the younger age group the coach may want to pass the ball across so ensure accuracy and keep the activity moving along.

Can the attackers take a 'positive first touch' towards one of the goals?

If the defender 'seals off a goal' can the attacker change direction and attack the open goal?

Can the defender move across to take some of the attackers space qwhile the ball is moving?

If you have many players you can play the same game on the other side of the field simultaneously.

Have the coaches and the subs in the middle of the two fields. When the ball goes out of bounds the coach yells "New Ball" and plays another ball onto the field
