Stuck in The Mud (10 mins)

Split your field in half and have the game played on one half.

Players Start without soccer balls. For the first round have the coach play the mud monster. If the players get tagged by the mud monster they are "Stuck in the mud" If they are stuck in the mud they must stand still with their legs open. To become unstuck another players must crawl thru the stuck players legs. The players should be encouraged to shout for help when stuck in the mud. After a few games have every player except the freeze monster get a ball.

The mud monster then has to tag or touch the soccer balls of the other players. If the mud monster touches your soccer ball you have to hold your soccer ball above your head and shout for help. To get unstuck one of the other players must put their ball thru your legs.

If game is too easy you can add another mud monster.

Knockout becomes Have A Ball (10 mins)

Set up small 10 x 10 square for the following activity, the space should be small.

Knockout: Players dribble their ball while trying to knock other player’s balls

outside of the grid. Players can never leave their own ball. If their ball gets

knocked out have them retrieve it quickly and get back into the game. Coach

can give a minor challenge 10 ball taps, sprint around the grid, etc.

before player can re-enter the grid.

Focus:

Shielding

Poke tackling

Have a Ball: Same set-up, but now one player in each grid begins without

a ball. The player without the ball now tries to win the ball off of any of the

dribblers. If he/she does so successfully, they now keep the ball and the person

who lost the ball tries to win any of the other balls back. You must win the ball,

you cannot kick it out. If the ball is kicked out the players who was dribbling

retrieves it and rejoins the game. Game should be played for 90 seconds. Who

doesn’t have a ball at the end? Assess a minor challenge for whoever is without

the ball.

1v1 to two goals (10 mins)

Divide your field down the middle as shown and move your goals over. Split your players into two teams and have half of the line up at the centre cone (yellow cone) and the other half line up on the centre of the touchline. You should also create a shooting zone (about 5 yards) from Each goal.

The blue defenders pass the ball across to the red attackers. Players can score in either goal but have to enter the shooting zone before scoring. If the defender wins the ball the defender can score in either goal also.

Have the players start as soon as the ball goes out of bounds or is scored.

If coaching at the younger age group the coach may want to pass the ball across so ensure accuracy and keep the activity moving along.

Can the attackers take a 'positive first touch' towards one of the goals?

If the defender 'seals off a goal' can the attacker change direction and attack the open goal?

Can the defender move across to take some of the attackers space qwhile the ball is moving?

If you have many players you can play the same game on the other side of the field simultaneously.
