Gates Passing

Freestyle Juggling

Specific Juggling

Quick Groups: give players different group numbers to create and manage

Names: have players re-introduce themselves to get more acquainted

<Quick Thinking Component> <Team Building Component>

Final phase of Quick Groups is to have players get into groups / pairs for gates passing

Allow players to get acquainted with the grid and the gates

Ask players to have one ball between two and dribble through all the gates with their partner following so as to understand / be aware of the set up, switch partners once and we are then ready to begin our gates passing exercise

In this exercise, players will use the gates to pass to each other, the coach will ask for different parts of the feet to be used (i.e. sole, inside, outside, heel) and the coach will encourage striking the ball through the centre. The coach will encourage players to strike the ball through the center (unless it is a specialty pass).

Gates Passing

- in a defined area

- in pairs of equal and different ability

Key Points of Passing

- see the ball, see the person

Coaching Recommendations:

Coach the specific theme we focussed on in the exercise prior to game play: passing and receiving

Manage the game, Coach the specific theme only under circumstances where a poor decision or technique was executed

Game Rules: Pass-ins from the sidelines, corner kicks (encourage short), from a dead ball always encourage players to have a left and right option and a high option (creating width and depth).
