Circle Drill Combination (20 mins)

Warm Up

1. Players partner-up in the middle circle (a Leader and a Trailer)

2. All players outside the circle have a ball at their feet.

3. Players in the middle check to the outside players perform the skills below, and switch positions (Trailer and Leader) after approximately two minutes (then switch the outside with the inside). Go through the following progressions:

A) Leader checks to ball carrier who passes the ball in. The Leader lets the ball go though his legs and opens up to one side, Trailer performs a give and go and sends the ball back to the outside

B) Leader checks to outside player. Outside player passes to Leader and opens up for a give and go. Outside player gets ball back, plays it to the Trailer. Trailer plays it into the Leader who has now moved to the outside (Leader and Outside Players switch positions). Outside player now becomes the Trailer, and the former Trailer now becomes the Leader

Endzone (Football) Game (20 mins)

Endzone (Football) Game

1. Objective of the game is to pass to a teammate into the opponents endzone.

2. Player must receive the ball with possession, but cannot enter the endzone until the ball has been kicked (Just like the offside rule). Every pass received with possession = 1pt

3. Defending players can enter their OWN endzone anytime they wish.

Coaching Points:

A) Supporting runs to support ball receiver BEFORE they receive the ball (initiating runs)

B) Coach players playing with their back to goal to play the way they face (requires part A above)

C) Coach 3rd man runs off the ball
