SSG - Dribbling skills

Set up

40 x 30 metre pitch

30 x 6 metre end zones at each end

5 metre corner zones marked out with different corners in the end zones

12 players (6 blue / 6 red)

Spare balls in each corner to speed up play

Organisation

Two teams of 6 play against each other and try to dribble the ball into the other teams end zone to gain a point.

Progressions

1. When a player succesfully dribbles into the other teams end zone, they keep possession and play the other way until ball is lost.

2. Designate a specific corner for each team to dribble into.

3. Set a time players have to get the ball into an end zone or they lose possession.

4. Put a target on the amount of passes before you can get into the end zone, for example 4 passes, to encourage players to run/dribble with the ball more.

Key Points

1. Keep the ball close to your feet.

2. Vary the surfaces of the foot to control the ball (inside/outside/sole)

3. Keep your head up and look where your opposition / team mates are.

4. Look to use change of pace and direction

5. Use a skill to beat an opponent (feint / stepover / etc)

6. Look to pass to a team mate in space so that they can dribble into the end zone and score
