Ball Manipulation - Moves / Feints (30 mins)

Objective

To develop ball control and practicing different attacking moves/feints.

Description

In a square of approximately 10 yards we place a circle or in this case position cones in the centre. Players are separated into groups in the corners of the square.

On the coaches command, players dribble towards the centre of the square perform a feint before taking the ball away to the LEFT, RIGHT, RETURN or STRAIGHT to the opposite end.

The different feints and change of position is pre-determined by the coach.

Coaching Points

1- Keep the ball close to the feet.

2- Make many touches with the ball.

3- Dribbling with the ball should be done with soft touches.

4- Move/Feint - exaggerate the move making a sharp movement in a different direction.

4v1 (+2) (20 mins)

Learning Objectives

4 x ( 5x5) squares. 4 players on the out side with two middle men and one defender.

Players play 4 v 1 in one of the squares. After 3 passes one of the outside players only can switch the ball to another square.

The outside players move along the outside to support that square. The two in the middle move to the other square to join in plus the defender. If the defender wins the ball then he swaps with the player that gave it away.

Progressions:

1. Add another defender who positions himself on the cross in the middle. As the ball is transferred to another square, a new defender presses the ball and the other defender acts as cover.

2. The player who switches the ball, joins in and moves inside the square. One of the inside players then moves to the outside. This rotation puts an increased emphasis on decision making and awareness.
