Technical Warm-up (20 mins)

A. Turning U9 & U10's. 3 groups of 4 and/or 5. (Try having the better players do the drill with each other, for best development). Two balls but not at same time.

- can start off with basic foot skills. Ball mastery or 1v1 moves.

1) Receive with back foot. (May need to spend a lot more time on this than anything else.

* can start off just receiving with back foot and then playing to opposite line and following pass. Player who passed it in goes into the middle to receive from opposite line.

2) Outside foot turn. Turn to outside of cone and then pass to next person in line.

3) Inside foot turn across body

4) Cruyff cut against the grain

B. Turning U11-U12's: 2 Balls going.

1) Check at an angle and receive with hips open and ball across your body.

2) Outside foot turn

3) Inside across

4) Drag across

5) Lay off and peel off, players plays ball between two cones

Coaching Points: 1) What is our body posture suppose to be? (bent knees, arms out for balance, on the balls of our feet) 2) How do you know you can turn? Peaking. 3) How can we separate from defender? (Check away and check to)

Back to Goal Game (20 mins)

Back to Goal Game: North Carolina

- This is duel with your back to goal. The Receiving player touches the post, when ready check to the ball on an angle - When she leaves serving player plays it into path of her run; defender from other post comes to defend - 2 vs. 1. Player who passed it can join the attack.

Progression:

1) If you choose to play the midfielder in, the next defender can go in to make it 2v2.

2) Every pass you play the next defender and attacker enter the game.

Competition: Attackers have to score 5 out of 10. Losing team does fitness. Switch position of players.

Coaching Points: 1)If defender is checking hard without slowing down, cut it against the grain.

2) Only pass when you have to. If you keep passing, more defender's come into play.3) If you keep passing in the attacking third, more time for more defenders to come. 4) Use your 1v1 ability to carve and finish. 5) most dangerous player is the one who can be the most successful in this game. 6) Finihsing angle is better if you go inside.

Flying Changes (15 mins)

3v3 Flying Changes.

A) standard 3v3 flying changes. First team to 10 wins.

B) 2v2 flying changes + 1 attacker and 1 defender on each side. First to 10 wins. Hae to play into striker once before going to goal.

Coaching points: Speed of play. Are you attacking space on your dribble? Is the striker holding up the ball well? Is she finding the seams to get open? Is the offensive players even looking up to find the seams? Is there a change of pace once ball is played into attacker?

Half Field Game (15 mins)

Half Field Transition Game

6 v 4 + GK

Rules

Coach will give ball to the three players. The three players score by dribbling across one of the two cone goals.

The 6 players will have to get compact ASAP to win the ball.

Coaching Points: Offensive players need to react quickly by becoming compact to win it and then spread out ASAP to create width and make it hard for the opposition to win it back again. Make sure when we get the ball wide and look to get in behind to cross it, players need to be making purposeful runs inside the box. How can team going to big goal exploit the space?

Progression:

-Once attackers win ball they can go to goal directly.

Add one player to defensive team to make it 4 field players + 1 GK.

***Introduce the three new offensive set pieces.

Work on offensive and defensive free kicks.
