Tag Game

Organization:

Players divided into pairs, each pair hold a pinnie

Instructions:

Players run around the area, each pair holding a pinnie between them. The taggers (starting with one pair) have 1 ball between them. They try to pass the ball into the runners, below the knees. Once a group is tagged or hit with the ball, they get a ball and become another tagging group. The last group left are the winning team. Once either player is hit with theball they become it, taggers may only have one ball between them, the idea is to get them selves in a good anhgle to recive the ball from their partner and pass into the runners.

Coaching Points:

1) Passing technique

2) Receiving the ball: withdraw the surface of the foot as the ball arrives

3) prepare the ball into spce to prepare for your next action

Technical Semi-opposed

Organization:

-10x10 yd boxes with two 2yd gates set up in the corners of each box

-4 groups of 3 set up as shown, 1 ball per group, 2 players start in outside corner of their area and 1 player waits to receive at the opposite corner

Instructions:

- Player with the ball plays a pass to the player at the opposite corner then watches to see which goal the receiving player takes his touch toward and runs through the opposite goal, then to center cone to be the next receiver

- Receiving player takes the desired 1st touch toward one of the gates and dribbles through, before rejoining the line

- pass is played by the next player in line as soon as the receiver is ready and in position

Rd. 1 - open to the closest gate with the inside of the foot

Rd. 2 - take touch across the body to the farthest gate with the inside of the foot

Rd. 3 - take touch across the body to the farthest gate with the outside of the (opposite) foot

-after Rd. 3, move to 1st progression

Coaching Points:

- Get in line with the ball as it travels,

- choose the appropriate surface of the foot,

- Head up before receiving to observe open space,

- Contact with middle of the ball,

- First touch into space

- Can we disguise our first touch?

Progressions:

1 - Player with the ball plays a pass to the player wating to receive in the center, then immediately runs to one gate or the other,

Receiving player observes the movement of his teammate as the ball travels and takes his 1st touch toward the open gate and dribbles through the gate

2- Player that begins with the ball becomes a defender after the pass and can win the ball after running through one of the gates

3 - Passing player can defend without running through a gate, use small goals to pass into instead of gates to dribble through (as seen in top/right grid)
