Skill of the Day

Pull back/Drag Back Move

Have the kids dribble around the area trying to keep their ball close. If their ball gets out of control or too far in front the coach should try to get the ball from them and make them use their feet to get the ball back. Have the kids practice "freezing" with one foot on the ball to show control.

Pull Back is a three step move

1 "freeze" the ball by stepping on it

2 roll the ball behind you with the bottom of the foot

3 turn around and dribble away to "get away"

Now play a game of ball keep away where the kids have to do a pull back move to get away from the coach. Teach them to keep the ball close.

In a 15W x 20L yard grid scatter cones of different colors around the playing area. (example diagram uses Red, Yellow and Blue cones) Each racer has to be a character from the game Mario’s Kart and drive their kart (ball) around the track. Players will compete in races. e.g Race around the red cones by dribbling your ball and making a turn at each cone. If a driver hits a cone or goes out of bounds, then they will spin out, and have to run round their ball twice before carrying on.

Round 1: Players race around the Red cones only. (If players finish quickly ask them to repeat 2 or 3 times)

Round 2: Add in parents, coaches or players to act as shells. (Shells will pass their soccer ball to try and hit other players)

If a shell hits you or your ball, then you spin out!

Round 3: Tag Team! Players choose a partner. One player will be the leader, while the other must follow them around the track.

Round 4: Switch Partners, the follower now becomes the leader.
