Knockout becomes Have A Ball (15 mins)

Set up small 10 x 10 square for the following activity, the space should be small.

Knockout: Players dribble their ball while trying to knock other player’s balls

outside of the grid. Players can never leave their own ball. If their ball gets

knocked out have them retrieve it quickly and get back into the game. Coach

can give a minor challenge 10 ball taps, sprint around the grid, etc.

before player can re-enter the grid.

Focus: Dribbling, Shielding Poke tackling

Have a Ball: Same set-up, but now one player in each grid begins without

a ball. The player without the ball now tries to win the ball off of any of the

dribblers. If he/she does so successfully, they now keep the ball and the person

who lost the ball tries to win any of the other balls back. You must win the ball,

you cannot kick it out. If the ball is kicked out the players who was dribbling

retrieves it and rejoins the game. Game should be played for 90 seconds. Who

doesn't have a ball at the end? Assess a minor challenge for whoever is without the ball.

Focus: Dribbling, Shielding, Winning the Ball, Transition

Turn & Shoot (30 mins)

Preparation:

Six or more players in an area made up of half of 9v9 pitch including the penalty area with two mannequins and two cones.

Description:

Player A passes diagonally to player B who turns and shoots. Player A replaces player B. B joins the line. Player C repeats by passing to player D.

Mannequins are used to mimic defenders and for the players to manoeuvre around.

Coaching points:

Allow a maximum of three touches progressing to two touch (turn and shoot) as skills levels improve and permit. In a match situation in and around the penalty area is the most crowded part of the pitch - so the speed and efficiency of a player`s turn is crucial to success in this area.
