Organization:

Players in a circle all facing coach

Each player has a ball and cone to work with

Coach demonstrates a ball mastery technique, and the players repeat

Skills taught in this session are the 3 'V's - front, back and switch feet

Coaching Points:

Always light on toes

Hop as drag ball back

Turn body/hips/toes to face direction of balls destination

Move ball from one side of cone to the other in a V shape

Progressions:

Combine the skills together

Have the players race to complete x amount of the skill/s

The coach continuously changes what ball mastery techniques he is executing and the player must change ASAP with him (now they are forced to look up at coach and not down at ball to keep up with him)

semi-opposed (10 mins)

Organization:

Players pair up and join another pair

1 pair competes, using 1 ball

1 pair act as referees

Instructions:

1 player is attacker, his partner the defender

The attacker must look to use ball mastery techniques to stop the ball on either of his cones before defender puts his foot on the coresponding cone to score a point.

If a defender has his foot on a cone the attacker cannot score on the corresponding cone and must change direction toward the opposite cone.

The defender is not allowed to touch either the attacker or ball

The game ends once either a point is scored by the attacker, or the attacker dribbles past the end cones or over to the defenders side, or the attacker places the ball on his cone after the defender places his foot on the corresponding cone.

The referees are there to judge who made it to the cone first and when the game is over they become the compeating pair. After each rotation the attackers become defenders and vice versa.

Coaching Points:

Use the ball mastery techniques to change direction quickly.

'Sell' the skills to fake out the defenders into going into the wrong direction

Try to look at the defenders body position/weight and change direction at correct moments (when defenders hips turned fully commited to 1 direction/cone).

Change of speed

Use a variety of skills

Take the space/use speed if get ahead of defender

Progressions:
