Warm Up (WU) (10 mins)

SET UP: Warm Up (WU)

Players are divided into four groups and seperated into four boxes, one box per team. Players start with a smaller number of balls in their box and score a point everytime they can tag someone in their box with the ball. When they successfully tag another player they must drop the ball and and can not use said ball again until they have used another, or another player has used that ball.

KEY POINTS:

- Using different movements to escape tagging player (fundamental movements)

- Awareness of space, taggers and other players around you.

POTENTIAL PROGRESSIONS:

- Progress to add that taggers can only score points by throwing the ball at the other players.

- Players can use their feet to strike the ball and tag the other players.

Technical 1 (T1) (15 mins)

SET UP: Technical 1 (T1); Ball Striking

In T1 players work together with the players in their box to try and hit the players in the other three boxes, but they must do so from their box. If they throw their ball and hit a player below the neck then the player who has been hit must go and perform a football balance/skill with a ball in the corner of their box. If a player can catch a ball before it bounces then the player who threw the ball must perform a football balance/skill with a ball in the corner of their box.

KEY POINTS:

- Aiming at the target.

- Striking technique.

- Awareness of players in other boxes throwing/striking their balls.

- On toes, being prepared to dodge.

POTENTIAL PROGRESSIONS:

- Progress to players using their feet to strike the ball to hit other players below the knee.

- Players must use a different part of their foot to strike the ball.

- Must peform a pass with a team mate before striking to hit an opponent.

Technical 2 (T2) (15 mins)

SET UP: Technical 2 (T2); Ball Striking

In T2 the objective remains the same but teams will be allowed one player from their team who is allowed to play in any of the boxes. This player is immune to being hit with the ball and acts as a defender in the area that he is assigned to. After stealing a ball, he can choose to keep possession of it to distract the opponent or he can pass the ball back to his own team to give them an extra ball to strike with. This player can be substituted with any of their team mates at any time by performing a high five.

KEY POINTS:

- Decision making; when to pass or when strike.

- Awareness of opportunities and threats.

- Planning ahead; 'if I strike there, could I be hit from there?'

- Striking technique.

- Communication; eye contact, verbal, body language.

POTENTIAL PROGRESSIONS:

- Teams can use more than one player in other boxes.

- Once you have struck a ball at one team you must target a different team.

- Must complete pass with team mate in different box before striking.

- Must declare team/colour you are attacking before you do so.

Conditioned Game (CG) (15 mins)

SET UP: Conditioned Game (CG); Ball Striking

In CG introduce goals to the edges of the teams areas. These become the target and teams will score one point every time they score a goal. But they are also allowed to continue to strike other players who, as in T1 and T2, must perform a football balance/skill in their corner. In addition, they are also still allowed player(s) to play in other areas.

KEY POINTS:

- Long distance striking.

- Communication.

- Awareness; opportunities to strike players or goals.

POTENTIAL PROGRESSIONS:

-One player can become Goalkeeper.

-Can only score from inside opponents box.

-Try to score without the ball bouncing.

-Must strike another player before a goal.

Conditioned Game - Alternate (15 mins)

SET UP:

Add goals at the end of the area as shown. The playing area splits in to two smaller pitches (Red vs White and Pink vs Green in this example). Coach can decide the number of balls in play according to the ability of the group. If a team scores a goal, they nominate a player from the opposition to be eliminated from the game. Likewise, a player can be eliminated from the game if they are struck below the knee with the ball. First team to eliminate the other team wins.

KEY POINTS:

- Decision making; when to pass or when strike.

- Awareness of opportunities and threats.

- Planning ahead; 'if I strike there, could I be hit from there?'

- Striking technique.

- Communication; eye contact, verbal, body language.

POTENTIAL PROGRESSIONS:

- An alternative approach would be to give a point for scoring a goal / striking an opponent instead of using an elimination game.
