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:

Player A passes to the space in front of player B. Player B times his/her run to receive the ball as he/she is going forward. Than player B plays it into space in front of player C.

Coaching Points:

Makes sure the players are checking away when the ball is played to the player who is going to pass them the ball, so when the player who is going to pass the ball to them receives the ball they can make the run forward and the timing will be on. (ex. C should be checking away when the ball is being played from A to B, then when B receives the ball, C should be checking/running into the space to receive the ball from B)

Also coach the weight of the pass. Make sure the pass is into space, with the proper weight so the player is going into the direction they want to go instead of chasing the ball in the wrong direction.

Progressions:

Touch limit

Screen 4

Two players on the outside try to pass the ball through the triangle without the defender in the middle getting ball. (monkey in the middle)

Emphasize when to pass the feet, and when to pass to space.

If the defender is off, pass to feet.

If the defender is close, check in and then away to space and ask for the ball to be played into the space.

The player on the ball should first recognize where the defender is and make the proper kind of pass.
