When, Where and How To Dribble (15 mins)

20x30 yards area.

Four Corner Zones 5x5 yards.

Two teams of 4.

.

Rules:

-To score a goal, a player must dribble the ball into a corner zone and stop the ball.

-Opposition players are not allowed into the corner zones.

-Once you have scored in a corner zone, you can not score in the same corner again straightaway, the team must try to score in one of the other three corners.

.

Progression:

-Opposition players are now allowed into the corner zones to try and prevent the attacker from stopping the ball (scoring)

-This will mean players have to ensure close control of the ball, head up to see where the defenders are, and the correct body position between ball and man to keep possession.

.

Coaching Points:

When:

-Players should only be dribble when they have a chance of scoring in a corner zone, not when they are surrounded by defenders

.

Where:

-Players need to get their heads up to ensure they are dribbling into the correct area. Into a goal that is free instead of a goal that is marked for example

.

How:

-Close control of the ball, lots of touches, head up, both feet, changes of pace and direction to get away from opposition.

.

Coaching Process:

There will be lots of opportunities to use the coaching process, for example:

-A player passes when they could have dribbled into a corner zone

-A player tries to dribble when a pass to a free teammate could have led to them scoring

-A player dribbles to a goal that is marked instead of a goal that is free

-A player loses control of the ball when dribbling

-A player doesn't use and changes of pace/direction to get away from an opponent
