Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): 1v1 Penny Tails

1v1 Penny Tails (10 mins)

Organization:

Channels constructed as show above, more channels if numbers are big

Attackers are in white, defenders wearing blue

Each attacker hangs a Penny out of their shorts like a tail

Instructions:

Attackers attempt to make it through the channel and past their defender without getting their "tail" pulled out

1 Point for making it across succesfully, 1 point if defender removes the penny tail

Play for a designated amount of time and switch out defender

Coaching Points:

Use body fakes and feints to elude defender

-Shoulder drops

-spins

-quick feet back and forth

Timing of your body fake

-not too early, not too late

Acceleration + deceleration, not going one constant speed

Dont let penny tail be exposed to defender's grasp

Progressions:

Make channel narrower

Add in a second defender

Regression: Defender is only semi-opposed

NEW GAME: All players in one area each with a penny tail. Try to pull out other player's tails, last one standing wins.

Moves to beat defender (25 mins)

Organization:

25x25 grid set up as shown

Players split up evenly amongst the four corners

Each player with a ball

Instructions:

On coach's command, the first player from each line of White team dribbles out towards the center cone

Upon reaching the cone, players perform the designated skill move and dribble to the opposite line.

Moves include the Brush, Shoulder Drop, and Scissors

Once both players hae gotten around the cone, that is cue for the blue team to start their action

Coaching Points:

Ball control as you approach the cone AKA passive defender

Timing of the move

-not too early, not too late. Should be about 3-4 feet before cone

Brush: -Playing foot sweeps over the top of the ball, rolling it across their body

-Accelerate with the second touch following the move

Shoulder Drop: -Players take an exaggerated step with the non-playing foot, bending the knee and dropping the shoulder on one side of the body

-Then, push the ball with the outside of the playing foot and accelerate past the defender

Scissors: -Similar to Shoulder drop, but now the exaggerated step w/ non playing foot goes over the ball

-Push ball away with outside of playing foot and accelerate past the defender

Perform all moves with both feet + both directions

Progressions:

Brush -> Shoulder Drop -> Scissors

Competition- 1 Point for every succesful move. Best score after 10 tries wins

One ball per line, players past to next teammate after succesful move
