Touch Step Dribbling Runway (20 mins)

Setup:

After we divide 3 groups. Each group will have 3 sets of cones divided between 3 or 4 players. Runway is anywhere from 10-13 yards long and the cones are 1;2 yard apart (just enough room to fit ball through).

How It Works:

Players touch step dribble through runway, trying not to hit any of the cones. Players are to touch ball each step and not let the ball roll.

Drill Sequence:

A. Practice Moves- Favourite then Opposite Foot

B. Relay races where each player goes twice (player tags teammate before next player can go). First team sitting down wins. Do relay race for one foot at a time.

Keys:

1. Ensure players are touching ball every step (not just letting the ball run)

2. Back is bent to improve speed

3. Support leg doesn't catch up to the ball.

Progression (All groups):

Remove runways cones and place 1 cone 10-13 yards away from starting cone. Players will have touch step relay race without runway restrictions. Right foot/left foot.

Players will practice then do relay race (players go twice each); they will alternate turns. If players just kick ball (not touch every step then they have to start again).

BE VERY TOUGH ON THEM, MAKE THEM DO IT OVER. WE ARE AIMING FOR PERFECTION!!!!!!

Key Points:

1.Run off your toes for dribbling foot (the supporting leg can mildly have heel touch the ground)

2.Use your touch step (pinky toe area) for outside foot.

3.Support leg doesn’t catch up to dribbling leg. (Touches are too small then)

4.Ball is more in the middle of your body.

5.Shoulders straight on, not turned sideways.

6. Knees are bent, upper body is bent.

Change Direction - 1 v 1 On the Line & Soccer Wars (45 mins)

Setup:

Diamond shape grid set up in a 15 X 12 Grid. Grid will be used for A, B, and C.

Group 1 will run through A and B.

Group 2 will run through A and C.

How It Works:

A) 1 v 1 on The Line - Beat your opponent - 15 MIN

35s rounds, 1 v 1 players trying to beat player to cones. Defender is not allowed to touch ball and point is not scored if defender gets foot inline with cone before attacker stops ball with cone. Switch roles and other player tries.

B) Soccer Wars - Goals on Side. - Group 1 - 30 MIN

Players waiting, stand on each side of game so that the player who goes out is replaced by a player from the same side. Players not next in line can help get balls back in place. Attacker starts in front of cone and defender must start between cones with balls on them.

Player with ball can score on either goal. Players score by knocking ball of pylon. Winner stays in. If attacker misses then defender gets ball from middle and begins as an attacker.

Using the moves/feints we've been working on to beat his/her opponent. Change of direction and dribbling with the far foot will make players successful.

C)Soccer Wars with Suport - Group 2 - 30 MIN

Similar to B), the player with the ball is trying to score a point by passing to both supporting players. Once the attacker passes to both support players, the attacker receives 1 point. A new defender steps in if the attacker is successful.

If the attacker loses the ball then the defender starts the possession and tries the same.

Keys:

1. Believe in your move (some players hesitate after doing move because they don't think it will work and lose their opportunity).

2. Keep eye on ball and defender

3. Accelerate after making move

4. Dribble with far foot (protect the ball)
