ACTIVITIES

Warm-up

A. In pairs, with two balls, ask players to play catch with two balls at the same time. They can bounce the ball, arc it high or throw it to the side of the other ball.

B. Challenge players to the same task with their feet.

EMPHASIS/COACHING POINTS

A. Activities like this are fun and stress working together. Challenge them to go fast.

B. Let them figure out a solution.

C. On the exchange, ask players to move to, and control the ball as quickly as possible.

Ask players to dribble in and out of each other, changing speed and direction. On your signal each player should stop his ball and move on to any other ball. Repeat as above except that on your signal players should throw their ball in the air and get any other ball.

Individual Activities (10-15 minutes)

A. In threes, ask one player to stand in the middle of two others who are about 12 yards apart. The player in the middle will receive a pass from an outside player. Their challenge is to accept the ball with either foot and turn with it to pass to the other player. Repeat in the opposite direction.

B. Put one player in the middle of four. Ask the player in the middle to receive the ball from any outside player and then turn and pass it to any other player. They would then get the ball back from that person and turn and pass to any other. The outside players should create a square about 12 yards on each side. Vary the size as you see fit.

C. Ask player B to receive a ball from player A, turn and beat player C and play the ball to player D. Repeat in the opposite direction.

EMPHASIS/COACHING POINTS

A. Show them how to receive the ball with the inside, outside or sole of the foot and then get them going. Let them know that they should receive and turn in a smooth motion. Don’t expect miracles.

B. Ask players to move to the ball, receive and turn as smoothly as possible. With time it will come.

C. Balls can be rolled in by hand if accurate passing is difficult for the outside players. Change roles regularly.

Small Group Activities

A. Organize players in groups of three, with one ball. Ask the player with the ball to keep it from the other two as long as he can. If he loses the ball he should immediately try to get it back.

B. Again with three players, have two players play keep-away from one. Ask players to dribble and to short pass to keep possession.

EMPHASIS/COACHING POINTS

A. Just let them play. Give rest every 30-40 seconds or as needed.

B. Change the groups of two, to give everyone a chance to play both roles. Alternate as above.

COCONUT SHY:

Set up: Place a number of balls on cones at each end of the

field. 2 teams play a regular game but goals are replaced by

coconuts (balls) on cones. Teams score goals by passing the

ball to knock over a coconut. Team wins when all coconuts

are knocked off.

Variations: Older players can play this game with 2 or 3

game balls on the field. Younger players can play in 1 v 1 or

2 v 2 formats and can play round robin style.

Expectations: Dribbling and passing skills with opposition.
