Freeze Tag (10 mins)

Freeze tag: There are “Dribblers” and “Taggers”. In a group of 12-13 kids, you’ll have about 9 dribblers and 4 taggers. On the coach’s signal the taggers are released to try and tag dribblers who obviously try to stay away from the taggers. Taggers do NOT have a ball, Dribblers do have a ball at their feet and must always keep it within touching distance. If a dribbler’s ball goes out of bounds, they lose control of their ball, or a tagger tags them the dribbler becomes FROZEN. A Frozen dribbler stays where they were tagged, holds the ball above their head, and keeps their feet shoulder width apart. A fellow dribbler can UN-Freeze players who are frozen by pushing their ball between the frozen player’s legs. If the taggers get everyone frozen they win. If the dribblers can go for two minutes (or coach’s allowed time) without everyone getting frozen the dribblers win. Rotate the taggers for the next game. Play several rounds

•When is it a good time to pass and unfreeze?

•When is it a better time to dribble?

Coaching Points:

•Vison while dribbling

Technical Activity (20 mins)

Technical Activity: In a 25x25 grid split the players into two groups. One group is inside the grid and the other group is spread around the outside of the grid. The players around the outside have a ball at their feet, and the inside players do not. For 60 seconds, the inside group checks to a player on the outside, receives a pass, and passes it back to the same person. Then they’ll find a new person on the outside to repeat the sequence. This continues for one minute. Switch the groups.

Techniques to work on:

•Right foot only two touch

•left foot only two touch

•receive with one foot pass with the other

•one touch

•Overlaps (the players inside will have the ball for this one)

•Give & Go’s (inside players have ball)

2v1 Attacking Decisions (25 mins)

2 v 1: Use the 25x25 grid and put gates at each end. Split the kids into two teams and have each team on opposite ends of the field. The game is initiated by one team passing the ball into the second team. The team receiving the ball will send two players and the defending team will only send one player. At this point the three kids on the field will play 2v1. They can pass or dribble through the gate to score. Be sure to switch sides so that both teams get a chance to attack and defend.

•How can you eliminate the defender?

•Is this a good time to dribble or pass?

•What kind of movement can you make to be dangerous?

Scrimmage 6v6 (20 mins)

Facilitate the game and help with positions, positioning, and game format. Facilitate a basic scrimmage with a goalkeeper and five field players. Allow the kids to “PLAY” but give guidance when necessary. Use a “coaching in the game” approach to emphasize the topics from this week’s training. Be sure to use the labeled names for the positions!
