Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Acitivities 1 & 2

Acitivities 1 & 2 (15 mins)

Set Up - Kids sit on line between cones. 10+ tall cones and disc cones spread out on field. 2 wide Pugg goals are set up at far end (have pirate ships set up in front if you have enough cones)

Activity #1 - Build the Ships - Kids welcomed to Pirate Cove (ask them what sounds a pirates make, how do they get around, etc...) and are asked to build their pirate ships, by dribbling out to a tall cone (ship) and bringing it back to their sitting area (dock). Then must dribble out and grab a disc cone (sail) and bring back placing it on top to complete pirate ship. Coach can act as sill alligator who tries to pick up balls & cones to challenge players to play at pace and control.

Activity #2 - Cannol Ball Attack - Kids are asked to attack Coaches ships in front of Pugg goals with cannon ball kicks (all balls used). Coach defends as needed and can also attack the small amount ot kid's ships. Ships can be rebuilt game ends when one team's ships are all knocked down.

Progression: Split group into 2 teams and have 1 team replace coach. Make sure to have even # of cones / ships. Play again with Coach monitoring.

Coaching Points:

- Keep the ball close!

- Soccer position to stop ball if needed

- Shoot with sweet spot (laces) for POWER!

Activity 3 & Final Game (15 mins)

Set Up: Similar set up as before, with a Pugg at each end, but 2 coned (yellow) islands in front. Even amount of balls at each end.

Activity #3 - Take the Treasure - Keep teams as you had them in Activity 2 (in pinnies) and have them at each end (red w/ R, blue w/ B as shown in diagram). Players are asked to run down to opposition end, and dribble a ball back to their island. Players cannot enter their island so they MUST shoot from outside the island to score. Then go back and get another ball and repeat. All missed shots must be brought back into play by coach or shooter. Coach can alter this rule if needed!

Final Game - Same as last week!

Coaching Points

- Head up to find open ball and to avoid opposing player

- little kicks to control ball when dribbling

- Shoot to score!
