Cones Island

Organization:Create a 20x20 (adjust size if needed) and set up an island of cones in the middle of the grid with enough space in between to dribble through them. Divide the players into 4 lines coming from each one of the corners of the grid. Every player with a ball.

Instructions: Players have to dribble through the island of cones, diagonally, and get to the corner across from them. Join the back of the line and wait for their turn to do it again. The game can be started with only 2 players going at a time.

Coaching Points:

- Make sure they're making small touches on the ball, the "Messi" dribbling.

- Pinky toe dribbling. Toes pointing down, push the ball with the pinky toe.

- Pick your head up after every touch.

Progressions:

1. All four corners go at the same time. Demanding more concentration to not run into each other.

2. Make it a race, two players come from each corner and the first one to get to the corner across from them gets a point.
