Skill Intro (10 mins)

Large grid, big enough for all players to dribble freely, and have space.

2/3mins - Low speed, low intensity, and using all parts of both feet to move the ball.

2/3mins - Accelerate when you see space in front of you; use only left/right foot.

Split the players into 4 groups & number them 1 to 4, placing them on all 4 sides. When the coach calls a number, those players dribble as quickly as possible across the square and back.

Next, two groups dribble at the same time: "Take care, eyes up; slow down and accellerate again if needed." Try opposite numbers eg 1 & 3, 2 & 4, then move onto side by side numbers eg 1 & 2, 3 & 4.

Skill Training (10 mins)

30 x 20yds grid with 4 small goals and a 'shooting line' about 5 - 7yds out from each end. Minumum of 4 players, and maximum of 8 players per grid.

The first player in each line begins to dribble on the coach's signal, once they reach the shooting zone, they can pass the ball into the goal and set the next player off. If a player misses the goal, they must go and high 5 the next player in line.

Which team completes one full sequence first?

- Right foot only

- Left foot only

Skill Training (15 mins)

30 x 20yds grid with 4 small goals and a 'shooting line' about 5 - 7yds out from each end. Minumum of 4 players, and maximum of 8 players per grid.

The 1st player dribbles across the grid to the opposite shooting zone. Players can only shoot on goal once inside the marked zone.

As soon as the player shoots, the next player on the opposing team begins to dribble across the grid towards the shooting zone. The first player must turn from attacker to defender, and chase the player player from the opposing team, trying to stop them score.

Count the goals! Which team scores the most and wins?

Possible Coaching Remarks:

"Touch the ball every few steps, the more touches you take, the slower you will run."

"Run as fast as you can keeping the ball under control."

"If the defender catches you, this is what you can do." (DEMONSTRATE!)
