Warm-Up (10 mins)

Organization:

-20 x 20 yard area

-Each player has a ball

Instructions:

Part 1

Each player has a ball and is introduced to a few different types of dribbling techniques:

Messi, Ronaldo, Xavi and Ineiesta

Players will be asked how they might use each type, after they have been introduced:

-If you have a lot of space which technique might be the best?

-If you are in a very tight space how could you dribble?

Part 2

-Space is the same, now all but two players have a ball.

-The players with out the ball are defenders and hold a pinnie in their hand.

-Defenders are trying to simply touch another players ball with their foot (They are not trying to tackle)

-When a Defender touches a ball they take that ball and give their pinnie to the attacker.

-That attacker then becomes the tagger/defender

-The goal is to get tagged the fewest times and to not be it when time runs out.

Coaching Points:

-Using the proper dribbling technique/surface of the foot

-Looking for/identifiying where the open space.

-Aware of the defenders and other attackers

-5 yard area around, two sides and back of red zone (blue cones)

Defenders can only move laterally between their two red cones, they are trying to pull the pinnie from the shorts of the attacker. Who is trying to get through the gauntlet, passing all three defenders. The next attacker may enter the gauntlet once the player in front of them clears the first defensive line. If an attacker gets their pinnie pulled out they must pick it up and go into the blue zone to put their pinnie back in their shorts, they then use the side channel to run back as fast as they can to get to the starting gate. Players get 3 points for each succesfull journey to the end of the gauntlet. Defenders get a point for each pinnie they pull.

Coaching Points:

1) Finding the open space, identify where the defender is and try to use the open space

2) change your pace and direction to fool a defender

3) imrprovise---Can you think of a great way to bet the defender?

4) Drop shoulder and change pace to wrong foot defender.
