Ball Retrive (10 mins)

Focus – Ball Literacy

Name of Game: Ball Retrive

Organization:

The coach kneels in the middle of the training area with the players around

him in a circle, with their ball in their hands. The coach takes one ball at a time and throws it

away. The players must retrieve the ball and bring it back to the coach as quickly as possible.

The coach then adds various conditions on how the players can return the ball e.g. balanced

in one hand, with right or left hand, rolling the ball along the ground, ball between the knees,

bouncing the ball, dribbling etc.

Variation

The coach can move.

Name of Game: Gates

Organization

The coach places cones throughout the training area in pairs. Make the gates different sizes.

Make sure that there are at least 3-4 more goals than the number of players participating.

The coach then challenges the players (for a set period of time 15-30 seconds) to get as

many goals as possible by moving through the cones in various ways e.g. running forward,

running backwards, ball stuffed up shirt, ball above the head, bouncing the ball, hopping,

skipping, dribbling.

Alternatives

Ask open ended questions as to how they could dribble through more gates. Ask them if they dribbled through more gates after following the advice given. Never ask them how many gates but strive to get more gates.

Try and dribble through consecutive gates, aline some gates.
