Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Warm Up/Activator

Warm Up/Activator (15 mins)

Organization: 4 groups of 3 in 4 different color pinnies, every player with a ball

4 goals set up as shown with one cone each placed in front of it (cone color should match one of the colors or the groups of 3, if cones don't match the color of the pinnies, tie one pinnie each to the four goals)

Instructions: All players are numbered 1, 2, or 3 in their group

Players dribble around the area maintaining control of their ball

When a coach calls out a number, that number player from each group will dribble out of the area toward the goal with their color cone/pinnie and shoot the ball

After shooting, retrieve ball and dribble back into the center box

Every player that scores gets a point for their team

Coaching Points:

Touch out of feet to create angle of approach,

head up to observe target,

plant the standing foot next to the ball,

knee over the ball,

toe down and ankle locked,

strike the ball with the laces,

follow through toward your target

Progressions: 1 - Only the first player to score gets a point each time the coach calls a number

2 - Players only have one touch outside the box to score (don't allow the players to take an unrealisticly big touch to get right up next to the goal) (Begin with this progression for U12)

3 - Coach will call a number and a color, the number will indicate which players take the shot for each team, the color is the goal that all four players have to try to score at, only the player that scores first will get the point for his team

Technical repetitions (15 mins)

Organization: 4 groups set up as shown, 1st player starts next to the triangle of cones facing the goal they are using (each line has their own small goal)

Instructions: 1st player in line takes their 1st touch through the triangle, making sure not to hit any cone with their ball (to accomplish this, their touch must be at an angle in order to miss the cone directly in front of them); player shoots the ball with their second touch

After shooting the ball, player turns and stands in front of the triangle to act as the defender for the next shooter

Teams get a point for every goal that is scored

Play for a set amount of time, then play round two using the weaker foot to shoot (make sure players realize to take the touch to the opposite side of the triangle)

Coaching Points:

Touch into space to create the angle of approach,

Head up to observe target,

plant the standing foot next to the ball,

head and knee over the ball,

toe down and ankle locked,

strike the ball with the laces,

follow through toward your target

Progressions:

1 - Have players use an attacking move before they take their touch to shoot (scissor, inside/outside)

2 - After shooting the ball, player turns and stands in front of the triangle to act as the defender for the next shooter; but now the defender can try to steal the ball once the attacker leaves the triangle
