Technical Warm up (15 mins)

1v0 Warm Up:

Groups of 3. Each player attacks the individual cone in the middle, connects a pass to the far side, and follows his pass to the far side. Upon receiving a pass, the player again takes on the middle cone.

Attack the middle cone decisively. Have a move in mind prior to starting your dribble.

Change direction and then burst into open space before passing.

The coach can show a move or allow the players to decide on their own.

Coaching Points/Questions:

What part of the foot can you use to dribble faster?

What surface are you using to get around the cone?

What surface are you using to pass the ball? To receive the ball?

Where should your first touch go?

1v1/2v1/3v2:

Start playing 1v1 to goal. The coach is the ball master; he/she will serve the ball to any player. Start with 1v1, then 2v1 and end with 3v2.

Variation: Goal scored after a combination play is worth 3 points. Every other goal is worth 1.

Encourage players to be creative and take risks.

Coaching Points/Questions:

Where should your first touch take you?

Why would you want to make the defender get close to you?

What moves can you use or beat the defender?

What surface of the foot will you strike the ball with?

When will you release the shot?
