- Players dribble freely in space looking to perform tasks given by coach.

Messi - Dribbling looking for gaps between other players who are defenders (small touches, pinky toe, head up as much as possible)

Xavi - Whenever space isn't available looking to change direction (ball out of feet so can pick head up immediately)

Ronaldo - Looking to dribble where there is lots of space ahead of him (bigger touches, pick head up on touch, laces of foot nearest ball). Have adjacent space to sprint into and then sprint back into original area

Organization:

2v2 Short Range Shooting

4 players (2 from each team) come out and play 2v2

They play for 45 second rounds

After 45 seconds, the coach yells switch.

All 4 players get off as soon as possible, and 4 new ones come on and play for 45 seconds

If a player touches the ball after the coach yells switch, the other team gets a penalty kick

Any foul during the game is a penalty kick (clock stops during penalty kicks)

If the ball is in play when the coach yells switch, that ball is still a live ball.

Every time a goal is scored,the players from the team that scored must yell out the score for it to count.

Game is to Ten Goals (must win by two)
