Warm Up (2) (10 mins)

Organization:

Same set up as activity from last session, now starting straight away with defenders patrolling middle area

Instructions:

Goal is still to get across to the other area, now avoiding opposition

Players can turn back to avoid pressure and re-enter their original area

However, if more players occupy one area than it started with, next round, they must even themselves out

Coaching Points:

1. dribble with your head up to see where the opponents are.

2. keep the ball close with your short touches when near players, then longer when you have space in front of you.

3. use the inside and outside of you feet to push the ball into space if another player is dribbling at you

Dribbling - decision making (15 mins)

Organization:

Players evenly spread out on opposite ends of each channel

One defender per channel (Blue)

Yellow players need a soccer ball

Instructions:

One Yellow player from each side dribbles out at the same time

Goal is to make it past the defender and across the channel without losing your ball

Play until you make it across, defender wins the ball, or ball out of bounds

Head down to opposite side and play again

Coaching Points:

Focus on players with the ball - decision making

Close control when defender has picked you to engage

Penetrate open space and get across quickly if defender turns back to you

Can you work with your teammate to help each other get across?

-try not to both dribble down the same side

Progressions:

Remove center line and create one grid

-More traffic and pressure to deal with

Reg - defneders are passive, not trying to win the ball just apply pressure

Reg - No soccer balls, pinni-tails
