Dribble Tag (10 mins)

In a 15w x 20l grid, all players dribbling a soccer ball will try to tag each other with their hands. If a player abandons their own ball you may tag their ball for extra points. (score is not as important as how they manipulate the ball) Have players keep count of their tags and try to beat their own score each round.

Check for understanding questions:

Coach-what parts of the foot are used for dribbling? Player: Laces to dribble forward and inside/outsdie of the foot to turn/cut

Coach: why is it important to keep your eyes up? Player: To avoid getting tagged or to find players to tag.
