Warm-up (25 mins)

Organization:

-20 x 20 yard area

-Each player has a ball

Instructions:

Part 1

Each player has a ball and is introduced to a few different types of dribbling techniques:

Messi, Ronaldo, Xavi and Ineiesta

Players will be asked how they might use each type, after they have been introduced:

-If you have a lot of space which technique might be the best?

-If you are in a very tight space how could you dribble?

Part 2

-Space is the same, now all but two players have a ball.

-The players with out the ball are defenders and hold a pinnie in their hand.

-Defenders are trying to simply touch another players ball with their foot (They are not trying to tackle)

-When a Defender touches a ball they take that ball and give their pinnie to the attacker.

-That attacker then becomes the tagger/defender

-The goal is to get tagged the fewest times and to not be it when time runs out.

Coaching Points:

-Using the proper dribbling technique/surface of the foot

-Looking for/identifiying where the open space.

-Aware of the defenders and other attackers

Main Activity 1: 1v1 Defending (20 mins)

Organization:

- Same organization as previous slide, however players are in corners of the square, diagonal from each other as shown.

- One player with a ball.

Instructions (passive defender):

- Players play 5 passes back and forth to one another.

- On the 5th pass, the player receiving stops the ball and the passing player closes down (1)

- Once the defending player closes the space, the player with the ball dribbles while changing direction every few touches until they reach the opposite corner of the square (2)

- Once reaching the opposite corner, the defender retreats to opposite corner, player w/ ball plays pass and process repeats.

Coaching Points:

- Close space quickly, smaller/shorter steps as you approach defender. Can I get attacker's head down?

- Bent run: make play predictable

- Distance between player w/ ball and yourself: based on defender's / attacker's speed and quickness

- Jockey: how (body shape) / maintain comfortable distance - close enough to win ball if needed

- When to tackle / How to tackle

Progressions:

- Attacker takes heavy touch, defender wins ball

- Go live, attacker must touch cone w/ ball
