Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): U7-U8
Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): U7-U8

U7-U8

Organization:

- 15x15 grid or adjusted for numbers on the team. Enough space to have some room but not too much space where they will never run into each other

- For the U7 and U8 age groups, the game is highly individual where the focus on the players is still primarily on dribbling. Because of this we want to continue to encourage lots of touches on the ball and prepare the players for the game they are about to play. We don't want line drills before a game where a player will touch the ball 5 times in ten minutes.

- With this dribbling activity, every player will be on the ball for the duration of the warmup getting lots of touches as well as preparing for the game.

Instructions:

-STEP I:

-Players dribble using Messi touches and Ronaldo touches, choosing the correct time for each, ie close spaces using messi touches, open space using ronaldo touches.

-After a few minutes, a challenge is introduced. Players now race to 50+ touches using Messi, Ronaldo, or a combination of the two.

STEP II.

-Players dribble throughout area using any part of foot and wait for different commands

1) Change - Players leave their ball and find a new one to dribble with

2) Out - Players dribble as quickly as they can to the edge of the field

3) In - Players dribble as quickly as they can around the coach, keeping close control of the ball

U9-U10

Organization:

- For U9 and U10 we contonue to focus on individual technical work but are now starting to incorporate more passing amongst players before the game starts to reflect how we want the game to be played at this age

- Instead of just one activity during the warmup we will now have two or three different activities and the order is represented by the number in the session above

Instructions:

1) The dribbling warm-up remains the same as listed in the U7-U8 session. Touches on the ball using different surfaces of the foot in an area where they will be forced to change direction and keep an eye out for other players

2) Players go into the grid, half with soccer balls and the other half without. The players are moving inside the grid and players without a ball are calling for a pass. Passing and moving inside the grid focusing on receiving on our back foot, taking a positive first touch or away from the defender, and communicating for the ball

OR

2b) Depending on the ability of the group, they can do a 3v0 and then 3v1 rondo after the individual technical warmup. Focus on players moving in angles to support teammates, players receiving across their body onto the backfoot, and communication and good, strong passes

U11-U12

Organization:

- For U11 and U12 the focus is now to begin to incorporate a dynamic warm-up in our pre-game and session ritual to begin to encourage good habits in our players as well as prepare their bodies for the match. We incorporate more pressure in the possession activities to begin to create a more game-like scenario for them

Instructions:

1) Players begin with a dynamic warm-up and then stretch afterwards in a circle

2) Players move into a passing and moving activity that can incorporate several different progressions for players to perform when they receive the ball but the focus is still on our passing technique, movement off the ball, and communication

3) Players are now put into a 3v1 activity to get them moving and add pressure with our possession activity to resemble a more game-like situation. Depending on the level of the team, you can also move into a larger possession activity

U13-U18

Organization:

- With U13 and above the warm-up looks more like a traditional warm-up that we have all seen and can imagine. We are ensuring that the players' bodies are ready physically as well as technically and mentally. The goal is for the players to be ready to go the second the whistle blows rather than ten minutes into the match

Instructions:

1) After a dynamic warm-up and a stretch, the group will then move into an SAQ activity focusing on quick, sharp movements. A ball can be incorporated at the end of each sprint. Players will stretch on their own after the SAQ work in a circle

2) We will then move into an 8v4 possession activity with three different teams. One team is defending and the team that loses the ball then transitions into the defending 4. Depending on the level of your team, you can change it up and offer a harder possession activity such as 7v7+1 or variations where there is less of a numerical advantage

3) Players are then given several minutes to work on their own depending on what they want to do before the match. Some may want to work on receiving the ball in the air, or work on crossing and finishing, etc
