Freeze Tag (10 mins)

There are “Dribblers” and “Taggers”. In a group of 12-13 kids, you’ll have about 10 dribblers and 2-3 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 without everyone getting frozen the dribblers win. Rotate the taggers for the next game. Play two or three rounds depending how long each round takes.

Coaching Points:

•Heal down, toe up, ankle locked foot position (check mark)

•Hips and non-kicking foot pointed in direction of target

•Watch your foot strike through center of the ball

•How hard or soft to strike the ball (proper weight)

Technical Activity (15 mins)

Using a square 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 45 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. Running through a gate in the middle before finding the next player helps. Switch the groups.

Patterns to work on:

•Right foot only two touch

•left foot only two touch

•receive with one foot pass with the other

Gates (20 mins)

3 players 1 ball. As a group of 3 players try to pass the ball through as many gates as possible. Make gates in various sizes, directions, and colors. Gradually provide more challenges for the players.

Coaching Points:

•How can your pass make your partner better?

•What can you do after you pass?

•Where can the third player be moving?

3v3 Outta Here (20 mins)

Play 3v3 (four gates), but when the ball goes out, a goal is scored, or time goes to long – three new players for each team enter the field. Have the players initiate the game with a pass across to the other team.

•How can you make that pass better?

•Where can you go so that your teammate can pass you the ball?

Scrimmage 6v6 (10 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!
