Messi/Xavi/Ronaldo

Organization:

Every player with a ball.

Instructions:

Players are asked to dribble ball inside of area avoiding other players using correct dribbling technique showed by coach:

-Use pinky toe to push ball

-On toes/lift heels/knee over ball

-Head up tp observe other players/space

-When space is tight, take a touch with every step like Messi

-When see space to drive into, take bigger touches and accelerate into the space like Ronaldo

-If area crowed with players can you turn into a new space like Xavi

Once players grasping technical aspects shown by coach a competition is introduced:

-players must compete to see who can reach '50' dribble touches (pinky toe pushs) first. However if they leave the area or hit another player/ball they lose '10' amount of counts i.e.if have taken 30 dribble touches then hit another player they are back down to a 20 count and may be racing to a 50 count.

-Make sure to at least play twice ensuring 1 game is left foot only and the 2nd is right foot only to train both feet equally.

Progression:

Add defenders. Every player has a ball apart from the defenders who are holding pinnies. The attacking players start on 10 points each, and the defenders on 9. If a defender touches your ball, the attacker gives them the ball and takes the pinnie to become the new defender along with losing a point. The player with the most amount of points left after 90 Seconds is the winner.

-Keep head up and check shoulders regualry to identify where the defenders are/where the space is

-Smaller Messi touches in tighter areas, bigger Ronaldo touches if see pockets of space to drive into

-If challenged by a defender, can you shield ball (put body in between defender and the ball) and eventually turn away/beat the player like Xavi without defender getting touch on the ball.
