Paint the Field (10 mins)

2 players 1 ball. As a group of 2 players pretend that the field is a piece of paper and they must pass the ball (their paint brush) to cover the entire page.

Emphasize receiving technique

- "Check" mark

- Large surface touches the ball to receive and strike

- footwork to get in line with the pass

•How can you cover the entire field quicker?

•Why did the ball get away from you?

Technical Activity (25 mins)

Using a square split the players into two groups. One group is inside the grid and the other group is spread around the outside of the grid. The players around the outside have a ball at their feet, and the inside players do not. For 60 seconds, the inside group checks to a player on the outside, receives a pass, and passes it back to the same person. Then they’ll find a new person on the outside to repeat the sequence. This continues for one minute. Switch the groups.

Techniques to work on:

•Right foot only two touch

•left foot only two touch

•receive with one foot pass with the other

Focus on receiving technique:

- Check mark

- Large surface touches the ball to receive and strike

- footwork to get in line with the pass

3v3 Outta Here (25 mins)

Play 3v3 (four gates), but when the ball goes out, a goal is scored, or time goes to long – three new players for each team enter the field. Have the players initiate the game with a pass across to the other team.

Coaching Points:

•What part of your foot should you receive the ball with?

•What should your foot look like when you receive the ball?

•Why did the ball get away from you?

8v8 (25 mins)

Facilitate the game and help with positions, positioning, and game format. Facilitate a basic scrimmage with a goalkeeper and five field players. Allow the kids to “PLAY” but give guidance when necessary. Use a “coaching in the game” approach to emphasize the topics from this week’s training.
