Warm-Up: Rondo (10 mins)

Description

Keep players in a big enough circle to be successful. For younger or less able groups, start without a defender. The important points to get right first are:

- 2 touch max

- Do not let the ball stop rolling

- Do not pass straight back to the person who passed to you

This should begin to develop the basic skills needed to be successful against 1 defender. You can start the defender as a 'passive defender'. This will likely need to be you as the coach because the kids will want to win the ball back.

If necessary, make multiple circles. I prefer no more than 6 - 8 players in the circle.

Decription

Half of the players start in the middle with a ball. The other half are spread out around the outside of the field. Blues must find a Player on the outside and pass to them, taking their place. The new Player (Red) must dribble into the box and find another outside player to pass to. Continue.

Activity 2: Receiving Boxes (15 mins)

Description

Make six 2x2 boxes. Split group into pairs. 1 ball between them. A player must pass to their partner inside one of the boxes. The player receives the pass with one touch, taking them out of the box through one of the 3 other sides (obviously excluding the side the ball was passed through).

Make this a competition, 1 point for each successful first touch, 2 points if it is with the weak foot.

Coaching Points

Head up - evaluate which side is the best option

Inside or outside to receive

Be sideways, it makes movement easier on the hips
