Art Attack (10 mins)

Art Attack

25y by 25y area, each player has a ball.

Each players ball is their paintbrush, they are trying to paint the grid (paper) their colour. Get the players to dribble everywhere in the grid! Make sure they are doing small touches so they dont miss a spot!

Progression:

1) You will shout refill and they all have to get more paint on their brush. They will do this by leaving the grid and doing 5 consecutive pull backs before returning.

2) Put some triangles and squares (paint spills) in certain areas of the grid (paper), players have to avoid the paint spills, if they go into the paint spills they have to do 5 consecutive sideways rolls.

A sideways roll is where a player puts one foot on top of the ball and rolls the ball using the sole across their body. So from right to left is 1 and left to right is 2 etc.

Play for 10 Minutes

Safe Zone Tag (15 mins)

Safe Zone Tag

25y by 25y area, 2 long but narrow safe zones. Red players are runners, blue players are taggers.

Red players have a ball each, blue players do not. The red players are looking to keep the ball and the blue players are looking to tag the ball using their foot.

Once a player is tagged they have to get out of the area and do 5 consecutive sideways rolls to get back in the game. A player can go into the safe zone, however they have to do 5 side to sides when they enter and once they have done them they have to come out. They cannot go into the same safe zone they entered until they have gone into the other safe zone.

Swap the taggers every 2 minutes.

Get players to shield the ball to prevent the taggers from touching the ball. The correct shielding technique is making sure you are between the ball and the opposition player.

Progression:

- No safe zones for the last 2 minutes, here we will see which players are good at shielding the ball.

Play for 15 minutes

Small Sided Scrimmage

35y wide, 25y long (recommendation), 4 v 4, no gk's, large supply of soccer balls.

As dribbling is the theme for the session I recommend that you make the field a lot wider than normal. The reason being is that there is more space in the wider areas for players to be positive and dribble forward.

Restart the game if the ball goes out with the player dribbling the ball in.

Encourage players to practice the pull back turn developed in the session, if they do it in the game or even try it make sure to praise. You could also say that if they do it in the scrimmage they get one point.

Play for 20 Minutes
