Dribbling Warm-Up (10 mins)

Organization:

-Every Player with ball in 20x30 grid

Instructions:

STEP I:

-Players dribble using Messi touches and Ronaldo touches, choosing the correct time for each, ie close spaces using messi touches, open space using ronaldo touches.

-After a few minutes, a challenge is introduced. Players now race to 50+ touches using Messi, Ronaldo, or a combination of the two.

STEP II.

-Players dribble throughout area using any part of foot and wait for different commands

1) Change - Players leave their ball and find a new one to dribble with

2) Out - Players dribble as quickly as they can to the edge of the field

3) In - Players dribble as quickly as they can around the coach, keeping close control of the ball

Coaching Points:

-Head up to see available space

-Keep the ball close when in crowded areas (can you take a touch every step you take)

-If a player sees a good area of space, then they can take bigger touch/accelerate into it

-Use correct dribbling technique (pinky toe touches, knee over ball)

Progressions:

-If players lose the ball outside of the area, or hit another player/ball they lose 10 points in the race to 50.

Main Theme 1 (10 mins)

Organization:

- 20x30 field, triangles throughout the grid

- Except for defenders, all players with a ball

Instructions:

- Trangle zones act as safe zones

- Defenders are trying to steal the ball away from players outside of the safe zones. If they do, then they switch roles and the defender dribbles the ball away, now playing as an attacker

- Only one player is allowed in the safe zone and players can only stay for a certain amount of time

- When a player enters the safe zone, they then do 10 toe-taps or any other number of foundation moves and then have to leave the safe zone

Coaching Points:

- Keep your head up - Look out for defenders and quickly find the nearest safe zone

- Recognize when to use Messi vs. Ronaldo touches

- Change of speed and direction

Progression:

- Remove safe zones

Organization:

- Field size adjusted as needed

- All players with a soccer ball except for one

Instructions:

- Playing Tom and Jerry (theme adjusted as needed) where one player is the mouse trying to get away from all the cats

- Players on the ball are dribbling and trying to pass the ball into the mouse

Coaching Points:

- Head up to observe target, then eyes on the ball when passing

- Strike through the middle of the ball and follow through the pass
