Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Sharks and Minnows

Sharks and Minnows (10 mins)

Organization: 1 player starts as "Shark" without a ball, the rest of the players have a ball and start at on one side.

Instructions: Shark says "fishies fishies cross my ocean" which instructs the minnows to try and cross the sea. They must then dribble across the sea with their ball avoiding the shark. The shark's goal is to kick the minnow's ball out of the sea/out of the grid. If they do then the minnow becomes a shark as well. All the minnows that are successful in crossing the sea then have to cross the sea with the additional sharks in play- last one left is the winner and maybe becomes a larger fish

Coaching Points: Controlling the ball- keeping it close when shark is near- pushing into space when shark is far- decision making and awareness when in possession of the ball

Possession (25 mins)

Organization: Two connected 20 by 15 grids. Two teams of 4-6 players, each team starts on one side.

Instructions: One team is given the ball, the other team must send 1-2 players to dispossess the team in possession by stealing the ball and passing it to their side or simply kicking it out of bounds. If they are successful in dispossessing, their team then starts with the ball and the team who lost possession will then send in defenders to dispossess. 5 passes in a row is a point.

Coaching Points: Movement off the ball- first touch- communication- decision making- awareness of defender and space when holding ball

Lightning shooting (25 mins)

Organization: One player starts in goal, the rest line up behind a cone. Balls start on either post.

Instructions: Ball is rolled out past the blue line to the player who is up- they take a shot (one touch). They then take another shot that is bouncing, this time right behind the red line. If they score both goals, the goalie is out. If their shot goes over or does not reach the net they are out. If they score one or none, they become the goalie and the goalie goes to the back of the line. Players that are out stand behind the goal- if they catch a shot in the air they are back in- if a shot hits the post or cross bar they are also back in.

Coaching Points: Concentration, speed in getting set in goal as keeper, technique of shooting.
