Juggling (5 mins)

Start off with the soccer balls in the players hands. Have players juggle with their thigh and catch, on their left and right thigh. Slowly we will work in diferent parts of each foot, head, chest and combine these. Always finish with a minute or two where each player can set a record, tell them to remember their record and try to beat it at home or at the next practice.

A2 D2 With Balls (15 mins)

Now the red players have a ball and play the same game as before but now they are trying to dribble thru the gates.

Players must dribble thru gates and not just kick the ball thru the gate. Therefor players must take a touch on the other side of the gate.

Can blue defenders get out to red attackers fast and keep them away from the gates. If blue defender wins the ball then blue player can scorein the red teams goals.

Attack Two, Defend Two

The Game: Start without balls as a tag game. Players play 1v1 with the red team attacking the blue teams gates. The red team starts the game as the blue team can not move until the red team does, this may need some coach encouragement but the idea is to get players to go as soon as the round before them ends. Can the red team run through the blue teams gates with out getting tagged. After a certain amount of time the blue team will attack the red teams gates. After a few rotations with each team having a few turns at attacking introduce the balls.

Same idea with the balls except the blue player is trying to win the ball rather than tag. If blue wins the ball he/she should immediately try to attack the red gates. If the ball goes out of bounds, the next pair of players should begin the exercise. Attackers must dribble the gates to score (take a touch on other side of the gate). Focus:

•The red attacker should “run at the defender” or dribble out to confront the red defender.

•Feint in a particular direction to force the defender to shift in one direction.

•Accelerate past the defender and dribble through a gate.

•BE CREATIVE!

•Transition quickly on loss of possession.

3 Ball Possession (30 mins)

3 Ball Possession

The Set-up: Divide the team into two groups (red & white). The size of the field will be dependent on the number of players. In a game of 5v5, field should be approximately 20x30 yards. 3 balls are needed.

The Exercise: Games are three minutes long. Red and White both try to maintain possession of as many balls as possible. At the end of three minutes the team that has the fewest balls is given a minor challenge (shuttle run, 10 push up’s, etc).

Focus:

•Communication

•Spacing

•Passing & receiving

•Transition

•Gaining possession

•Shielding

•Fitness

Play three rounds (best of three).
