Turning to keep possesion (10 mins)

Work area size is 10yds x 10yds

Phase 1

Coach serves the ball into the work area after calling two players (1 from two different groups). Player that gets possession of the ball keeps the ball for a count of 5 seconds. If he or she loses the ball the count starts again with the player that now has the ball.

Phase 2

Same start details but working players must now try to play out to the coach after keeping the ball for 5 seconds. Coach will now be moving around the square to create different optins for the player with the ball.

Coaching points

Players are looking to keep possesion of the ball without running away from the opposing player. Player with the ball should be trying to turn away from the defender by moving before the defender moves and moving away from the movement of the defender

Moving to a ball to keep possesion (10 mins)

Work area is 10yds x 10yds

Players start from opposite corners and move to the ball on the coach's command. Player closest to the ball should get to the ball 1st and will then try to keep the ball for 5 seconds. If possession is maintained the team that had the short run to the ball wins and is given a point. If the player with the long run gets possession and is able to keep the ball then that team gets 2 points. First team to 10 points wins with the losing team doing a penalty. Teams switch rolls and play again. 15 minute session

time.

Coaching Point

Players are now moving towards a ball with the intent of possessing the ball. Position of the body becomes the teaching point as players will need to position the body 1st to shield the ball and then use the skill to move the ball away from the defender

Shielding in controlled game situations (10 mins)

Work area is 15yds by 20yds

Yellow players on offense move towards a yellow player on the outside to get a ball. Player that gets a ball must then find his team mate in the square and complete a pass to them. Once the pass is completed the receiving player must then find a way to pass to any of the 4 outside players as long as they do not have a ball at their feet. If this sequence is completed a point is awarded.

Offensive players will have 3 minutes to earn as many points as possible before changing roles and then changing positions (working players become receiving players on the outside of the work area)

Coaching point

Players are now combining the turning aspect of the activity with the need to raise the head to find the open player and keep the ball long enough to complete the pass to an outside player.
