Warm Up

Organization: 2 grids as above.4 Cones in the middle for the players to run to. 4 soccer balls per grid.

Instructions: Players dribble to the cone diagonally opposite to them. They Xavi turn and go to the same side that they started on (but far end) and lay the ball off to the next player. Drill Repeats. All 4 players go at the same time.

Can TRY a rule that if the player arrives at the cone and there is not another player in their way, then they can continue on to their destination without the need for a Xavi Turn.

Coaching Points:

1) Messi Dribble to deal with interference. Ronaldo dribble for clear space.

2) Talk about the THREE E's of the move. Move should be sharp and dynamic.

3) Head not just up, but on a swivel and checking over shoulder.

4) Try to pick a clear line out of the turn to the team mate as quickly as possible before playing pass.

5) First touch is key to set player up for positive dribble.

Organization: 1 Big Grid. 2 Goals with GKs. Balls all start with players at the top.

Instructions: 2 Players at the top pass to the two players at the bottom. Player who receives the ball must try to score in either goal but can not shoot before the Red Cone. The defending players try to stop this. If Player can not get shot away in time, rather than risk losing it, he Xavi turns and goes to the other goal or looks for his team mate and creat a 2v1.

Coaching Points:

1) Messi Dribble to deal with interference. Ronaldo dribble for clear space. Remember, pentration first, possession 2nd.

2) Talk about the THREE E's of the move. Move should be sharp and dynamic.

3) Head not just up, but on a swivel and checking over shoulder.

4) Try to pick a clear line out of the turn to the team mate as quickly as possible before playing pass.

5) First touch is key to set player up for positive dribble.
