Skill Intro - Creep Game (5 mins)

Creep Game. Intro.

Setup a 10x10m grid with a player on each corner and 1 (tagger) in the middle. The idea is for the outside players to creep to another cone without being caught by the tagger. There should only be 1 player per cone. If the tagger catches someone then they become the tagger.

# Count how many changes of cones you can complete.

# Can you get your head up and commit the tagger

Skill Intro - Part 2 (15 mins)

Players to form groups of three around an area the size of the centre circle, with one player in the middle. The player in the middle receives the ball from one of the outside players, and opens up to receive the pass across their body, then get their head up to play in the other outside player. The outside player then plays the ball back to the middle man who repeats the turn and pass. Outside players are to move around to provide a target. Players can change over the middle after a few passes.

Coaching Points:

Can you perform the turn in traffic

Can you scan the area early to decide best type of turn

Can you use your body to turn away in traffic and get a good pass on the end of it
