Warm up

Organization:

10x10 square. All players with ball.

Instructions:

Progression of touches:

1) 50 touches, any foot and any part of the foot.

2) 50 touches, outside right than 50 touches outside left.

3) 50 touches, inside/out right / 50 touches inside/out left

4) Every player has 3 lives, you lose a life by (a) dribbling out of the area, (b) running into somebody or somebody runs into you, and (c) walking or stopping the ball for a long period of time.

You can vary this warm up any way you want, basically getting the players to get as many touches on the ball as possible, and in a close/tight area for control.

Coaching Points:

Small touches on the ball, close control, using the proper part of the foot to dribble with, dribbling with you head up, recognizing space and players around you.

Progressions:

Make the space smaller or larger depending on the ability level of your players.

Make the touch limit more or less.

Limit the parts of the foot to dribble with (only outside, inside, etc)

Lots of ways to adapt this simple warm up to fit your players ability level.

Screen 2

Organization:

As shown above, triangle size can vary depending on ability level

Instructions:

Pass the ball on the outside of the triangle.

While the ball is moving between A-B, player C is checking in, then when the ball gets to B, player C should check out/away to receive the ball. Continue passing the ball

Coaching Points:

Timing of the movement, of when to check in and away.

Understand that you don't check when the ball is at the player's feet, you should already be moving while the ball is being played/moving. That way when it's time for the ball to played you are all ready to receive the ball.

Screen 3

Instructions:

First pass is to feet, second is back to feet, the third is into space. (feet, feet, space OR 1-2 then through)

Coaching Points:

Same as the previous two progressions of this triangle passing activity.

Tying passing "to feet" and passing "to space" together.

Movement off ball is crucial to getting the timing right on the passes.

Progressions:

Main Activity (25 mins)

Organization:12 players (6v.6)

40x20 grid (can alter to fit your players ability or numbers), endzones 5x10

4v4 inside endzones, 1 per team in each endzone.

Instructions:

Goal is to connect endzone without losing possession.

Team gets one point everytime they get it from one endzone player to the other w/o losing possession.

Can start at endzone.

Players inside the endzone cannot defend each other, but can move laterally to receive the ball.

Rotate endzone players every 5 min or so. (or when a team reaches a certain point total, ex rotate after a team gets to 5 pts)

Coaching Points:

Opening up quickly to see the field, and to know where you are going next before receiving the ball.

Constantly checking where the pressure is coming from, so the next pass is played well.

Movement off the ball to either relieve pressure or take players away to create space and time for teammates.

Using the entire space given, opening up at the touchline so you can see the entire playing space and always running forward/into space rather than going "backwards"/turning into the touchline.

When to pass and when to dribble and take space.

Communication, communication, and more communication.

Progressions:

When the ball is played the endzone player, the endzone player dribbles out and the player who passed the ball now becomes the new endzone player.

Creates more movement, and no more stoppages to rotate the endzone player.

Teaches players to fill space left by teammates and to maintain "balance".

You can add touch min. or max. depending on the ability of your players.
