Tight Touches Skill (15 mins)

Set up:

Cones are 1/2 yard apart with a total of 6 working cones with a 6 x 6 grid in middle in between .

How it Works:

Practice skill below. Perform relay races after practicing each sequence.

Players will switch lines after each turn (players are practicing left foot above, so they move to the left).

Skill 1: Inside-inside, outside-outside:

Players do 2 touches with inside of foot (toe part), 2 touches with outside of foot (they are going in between the cones).

Work one foot at a time. Then switch feet.

IF TIME

Skill 2: Outside-inside, Outside-inside (Switching feet between sequences)

E.g. Right Outside-right inside, Left outside-left inside,

Players can go across grid to other side after finishing a turn.

Keys:

1. Bend back to maximize speed

2. Stay on toes (don't let your heels touch the ground).

3. Use the toe part of foot when using inside and the touch step on outside

4. Ensure your foot gets around ball when changing direction

5. Eyes on ball and in front of you.

Shooting Off The Dribble (35 mins)

Set Up - PART A:

Players are lined up 8-10 yards apart with a gates 1 yard wide. One ball per group.

How It Works:

Players are performing laces passing (top of foot) to each other.

Straight On: For Groups having trouble with locking ankle/pointing toes straight down, they should start straight on with no angle (i.e. laces strike ball right through gate).

Shoot with Correct Angle: Once players are comfortable locking their angle, they start off 1 yard behind the gates and touch ball to side and forward to create correct angle to shoot. (Far left of picture.)

Players alternate right/left foot.

Players can keep score. Perform for 7-12 MIN

Progression:

Set up - PART B:

2 goals opposite with 3 cones one yard apart on route to goal (Right side of per picture above).

Players are divided between 2 lines and goalkeepers are placed in each goal.

How it Works:

Player dribbles through at decent speed between cones, touches ball out and fires.

After shot, they collect ball and go around goal behind other line and continues. OR Players go behind same line and team with most goals after 2-3 minutes wins. We want players to have at least 12-15 shots per foot.

Goals/cones will be adjusted for so players work on left foot.

Key Factors:

1. Open up with first touch/take extra touch if ball is stuck and get ball on 25 degree angle

2. Point toes down

3. Lock ankle

4. Support leg in line with ball, pointed at target. Body over ball.

5. Swing through ball (hit hard, don't kill it)

6. Land on shooting leg when possible

4 v 4 King's Court (25 mins)

Set Up:

Grid is 25 x 15 (goals are 5 yards from out lines). 4 v 4 in middle. If there is an odd number than make a neutral player within the game. If teams are having trouble then can add more support players.

Progression 1:

All players have to be over half when a player is shooting.

Progression 2:

Cone check before receiving (player calls out cone colour coach is holding before receiving).

Progression 3:

Remove cone check and make it that players only have max 2 passes in opponents half before they must shoot.

Keys (General: Depth, Width, Improvisation, Mobility, Penetration):

1. Look for space to create shooting opportunities/Instict to shoot

2. Check shoulders to know what is around (i.e space to shoot or set someone else up to shoot)

3. Apply shooting key concepts when striking

4. Ensuring shots are effective (i.e. not off balance/bad angle).
