Objective

To develop ball control, feints and dribbling.

Description

This set up is called "The Star".

Four players start at the same time from all four sides of the star, they bribble in and out all the cones. As they approach the mannequin the players execute a move/feint then take the ball to the right and change their side.

Every 2 minutes the coach will change:

- The dribble sequence- i.e. dribbling in and out every 2 cones etc.

- Technique - inside feet only, outside feet only etc.

- Type of move feint

- Change the direction from anti-clockwise to clockwise

Rondo 4v2 (20 mins)

Learning Objectives

To develop passing, possession and creating space.

Description

In a square of 5 yards we play 4v2.

The four players outside the square have a maximun of 2 touches and must maintain possession playing only from outside of the square.

The two defenders inside the square have to intercept the ball. The player who looses possession ball will change roles to become a defender

Coaching Points

1- Create space to find the right position and angle to receive the ball.

2- Improve the speed of play by limiting to 1 touch when possible.

3- It is very important to coach the correct body shape for receiving passes.

4- The 2 defending players must communicate and work together, one closing down the player in possession and the other covering the angle for the pass.

Technical Dribbling, Feints/Turning & Shooting (20 mins)

Learning Objectives

To develop ball control, dribbling, turning, feints and shooting

Description

In a fiels area of 30x30 yards two teams play against each other for how many goals they can score past the goalkeepers.

The players dribble to the mannequin (or cones) and shape their body to perform a feint/turn (varied by the coach) past the mannequin followed with a shot at goal.

Switch the manequins (or cones) the opposite side to shoot with left foot.

Coaching points

1- The feint/move should be exaggerated with a radical change of direction with the players making sure to drop their shoulder.

2- Make sure the players imagine the mannequin to be an opposing player and treat them as such.

3- This exercise should be done at full dribbling speed.
