Warm up (10 mins)

Start the session by asking the players to carry out there own warm up. Give them the following constraints:

The warm up should include the ball at all times.

Try and stay in the yellow area, unless they can break out fast and back in again.

Try to use your other foot as often as you think you can.

Let them work it out together for a couple of minutes and then get them going.

Main Part (10 mins)

To start with ask each player to come up with a different skill that can be done between the red boxed areas.

Split the players into 4 groups and give 2 groups a green bib and the other 2 an orange one.

Start the players off in a clockwise direction from box to box.

Give them a couple of laps and then ask them if they think that they could do it faster.

Can you be the first to dribble around the circuit but still carrying out the right moves?

Now move the practice on to introduce a challange.

Set 2 of the groups in opposite corners anti-clockwise direction.

Again let the players do a couple of laps to figure out which skill they should be doing between the red boxes. Then ask them if they can do it a fast as possible, still maintaining the proper form.

Look at individuals and set challanges, Can you do 5 steo overs here?

Next challange.

Can 2 of the corners continue to dribble around the boxes while 2 pass from corner to corner?

Look for the passing player to keep their heads up and move out of the way of the cones. Look for the dribbling players to time movements so as not to interfere with the pass.

Progression 3 (10 mins)

Now get one player to be a defender in the middle of the square. Tell them that if they want they can make the area of yellow markers smaller to make their defence area smaller which will make it easier.

The players now look to move the ball through the middle area and into another of the red boxes.

Every time they are succesful they get a point. Every time the defender wins the ball they get a point, but only if they can take the ball to a red box. The player the defender has taken the ball from will become the defender.
