Organization: Add two small goals to the warm up.

 Activity:

Players will dribble the ball (under control) through the same pattern. Once you have left the top doubles cones you will attack the one defender trying to play a pass into the small goal they are defending (Be sure to chase your ball). Mix up the dribble with different surfances (sole, outside, foundation, ets.).

 Progression #1:

Same pattern through the cones but as soon as you reach the double cones at the top cross to the other side of the grid and attack the defender opposite your team. This will create a new look and a new opportunity to change your method of attacking the space.

 Coaching Points:

1. Quick feet and tight touches while around the cones.

2. Know when you can take a big touch into space or when to keep the ball close to your foot.

3. Be creative on the turn out from the top cones. Mix your moves not doing the same move every time.

Organization: Add a new line in what would be the final third of the original grid.

 Activity:

Two small goals will be placed at the end of the field with the final third line approximitly 8 yards off the end line. The game is for the attacking player to attack the "end zone (attacking third)" and score the goal diagonally across from their starting position. As soon as the shot is taken he/she needs to recover on defense and try to defelect the new attacker and prevent him/her from scoring. One point is awarded for the pass being scored. If the defender wins the ball they can play a pass into the single goal opposite the goal they are defending.

 Progression #1:

The attackers will now have the choice between attacking the goal directly in front of them or the goal across the field.

Points: 1 for straight across / 2 for across the field / Defender: 3 for single goal

 Coaching Points:

1. Exploit the space with a big touch.

2. Use little touches when slowing down or when close to goal/defender.

3. Change of pace or a move when attacking the defender.

4. Defender - think about body position, show attacker away from the goal.

5. Defernder - think about recovery run towards goal rather than pressuring the ball right away.
