Hunters (10 mins)

Hunters: In a group of approximately 12 players, 8 players would have a ball and the other 4 will not have a ball. On the coaches signal the “dribblers” will dribble in the grid trying to stay away from the “Hunters” who do NOT have a ball. The “Hunters” try to take a ball from the “dribblers”. If a “dirbbler’s” ball is stolen, the dribbler then instantly becomes a Hunter and the Hunter that stole the ball becomes the new dribbler. Play two or three rounds and encourage high energy from the Hunters to get to the player dribbling.

1v1 to Gates (25 mins)

1v1 to Gates: Set up two fields each about 15 x 20 and separate the kids into four groups (groups should be about 3 kids). Each group/team sets up at one end of the one field in a single file line (off the field to the side of the gate). Team A initiates the game by passing a ball in to team B and the first players from each line play making a 1v1 game to small gates (dribble through to score) **Feel free to use two gates on each end. Any time a goal is scored, the ball goes out of bounds, or the game lasts longer than 30 seconds the players on the field go off to the outside and new players begin a new game. The transition should be quick. After 10-12 games, make sure you switch so that both teams receive the ball to start. You can even rotate teams so that they play on both fields and get different competition.

•What happens if you don’t get to the attacker quickly?

•How can you position your body to make the dribbler go one way?

Scrimmage 6v6 (20 mins)

Facilitate the game and help with positions, positioning, and game format. Facilitate a basic scrimmage with a goalkeeper and five field players. Allow the kids to “PLAY” but give guidance when necessary. Use a “coaching in the game” approach to emphasize the topics from this week’s training. Be sure to use the labeled names for the positions!
