Review (10 mins)

Review of last weeks session. By testing the players the following week at practice, I'm hoping it encourages players to practice all week at home.

Organization:

-3 cones, each 10yds apart.

-Groups of 1 or 2 players.

-Each players with a ball.

-Additional ball sitting on top of a cone.

Instructions:

-Players begin by the cone that has the ball sitting on top.

-First players dribbles to the far cone and performs specific turn (drag back).

-Player must shoot and try to knock the ball off the cone before reaching the middle cone.

-If player does not perform turn properly, must dribble back and start again.

-First player to 5 wins.

Coaching Points:

1. Proper technique of turning.

2. Head up to see the cone.

SAQ (10 mins)

Organization:

-8 cones spaced about 1yd apart, 9th cone about 6yds away from the line. (can use a ladder or huddles instead of cones).

-Multiple lines so movements are quick, not waiting in line very long.

Instructions:

-Each movement is performed twice.

-Coach calls out movement and demostrates for players.

-Each player performs movement through the cones then jsprints to last cone and jogs back to the end of the line.

Examle: (2 feet in, side shuffle, ichy shuffle, sloam, etc..)

I like to split mine between running movements and hopping movements.

Coaching Points:

1. Knees bent, arms at 90 degrees (not in pockets).

2. Arm movement.

3. Quick feet.

4. Accelerate to the last cone.

Progressions:

-Hurdles so players have to explode and get knees up.

-Move lines closer to incorporate contact, such has shoulder bump or high five before movement.
