Ball Manipulation (30 mins)

Ball Manipulation Exercise

20 by 20 area, split into 4 boxes, 3 players in each box each with their own ball.

Coach starts by getting players used to the area they are working in, they cannot go outside of their square. Players dribble their soccer ball in their square using all parts of their foot.

Progressions:

- Players can only dribble with the inside of the foot

- Players can obnly dribble with the outside of their foot

- Players can only dribble with their laces

- Players can only dribble with their bottom of the foot

Once players have had plenty of touches, the coach will bring in toe touches and side to sides to do in their square.

Once coach shouts switch the players have to leave their ball and find another soccer ball in the grid as quickly as they can!

Progression:

1) Players move into another grid with theie ball when coach says switch

2) The players who are lost have to do a soccer specific punishment - 30 seconds of toe taps/side to sides

There are so many adaptations and progressions in this exercise.

Passing Numbers Game (20 mins)

Passing Numbers Game

4 soccer balls on cones as the targets one each side of the square, 2 teams each given a number.

Coach starts by calling a number out, one player from each team will contest the ball and will be looking to use the inside of their foot and pass it at one of the balls on the cones.

Because it is a passing game I like to call out more than one number so they are looking to pass to their teammate, we need the players to have good teamwork skills.
