Body Part Trap (15 mins)

Organization

Players dribble around the square working on different moves (pull back, j-cut, step over) when the coach calls them out

When coach calls out a body part the player must use that part to stop the ball. Make is easy, bottom of foot to crazy as nose or ear.

Coaching Points

Get players energized and excited to play.

Have fun with this warm-up, the kids usually love it and the crazier the better!!

Remember to also work on the moves and feel free to play and demonstrate with them.

OPTION: work this game as Simon Says and force them to do 3 pull backs to get back in

4 Sides (15 mins)

Organization

Players are introduced to the 4 parts of the foot used when dribbling.... the inside, outside, laces and bottom (to stop, roll over or pull back).

Have the players dribble in space using the 4 surfaces in this order - inside, outside, laces, stop with bottom or pull back.

Start slow and then challenge them to use non dominate foot every other time.

Coaching Points

Keep ball close

Good quality touches starting slow and speeding up as skill is gained

Progression

Assign a npart of the foot to each side of the square. On coach's command (for example "Outside") player performs turn/getaway touch with that surface, then dribbles out of the square on that side.

Capture the Ball (15 mins)

Equipment

Three or four grids 3x3 yards set up equally apart from each other.

All balls start in center of grids to begin game.

Players split as evenly as possible into their home grids.

Organization

On coach's command players race to get balls and return them to their home base

Once all balls are out of the center, players my invade other home bases and steal their balls

NO DEFENDING or stealing balls while being dribbled (only balls stored in home bases)

Coach calls time and counts balls to determine winners - then starts new round

Coaching Points

Heads up when dribbling.

Speed dribble back to home and control when entering.

Use pull back or Outside Chop when changing direction and coach can roam and force players to use a step over to get past the "whistle monster"

Scrimmage (15 mins)

Coaching Points:

Remind them to dribble and work on moves

Coaches remember that U6 players don't normally mentally comprehend the aspect of a team. Work to their strengths.

Do your BEST to let them keep playing. If the ball goes out of bounds kick it back in or yell "keep playing". 99% of the kids don't even realize it is out of bounds. They are there to play - LET THEM!!
