Tom & Jerry (15 mins)

Organization

20 x 20 yard grid. Players are in pairs. One player has ball (Cat), other player does not (Mouse). On command, "Run, Jerry, Run", the 'Mouse' can run away anywhere in the grid. The 'Cat', dribbles the ball and tries to catch him (by kicking ball against mouse, below the knee), this rarely happens. Then, after a minutes or so, Coach shouts "Come on Tom, catch that mousey!". Everyone stops, 'Mice' stand facing partner, with feet spread wide apart, the 'Cats' try to pass ball through legs. Everyone changes over and repeat.

Coaching Points

Dribble ball close, small touches, not big.

When passing, plant non-kicking foot, use the inside of kicking foot, swing leg from hip (No Toe Kicks)

Encourage 'Mice' to change speed as well as direction

Clean your Yard (15 mins)

Organization

Create a 'neutral area' between the two teams where no player is allowed. This area can be as small as one yard and as big as 10 yards wide. The width is determined by how far the players can kick the ball. Each player starts with a ball at his or her feet. On command, each team tries to keep their side of the game zone free of balls by kicking their ball over to the other team’s side. After an appropriate amount of time (when the balls become too scattered, or the players are losing focus), stop the game and count which side has the most balls on their side. Distribute the balls evenly for another try.

Coaching Points

Players can only use their left foot.

They can throw the ball back.

They must dribble the ball around a cone that has been set up in the middle of their "yard" and then kick it back.
