Description

The objective is to encourage all children to be confident to stay on the ball as much as possible and help decision making in order to find the most productive options. 'Stay on the Ball' does not mean to do everything themselves but to have confidence to hold/shield the ball and exploit any spaces that may open up if other options are not available.

Setup

After marking out a 5v5/7v7/9v9/11v11 pitch to be used later divide into quarters adding in Mini nets and divide players into each area to play 1v1/2v1/2v2/3v2 etc 

 

Objective

This could be used as arrival games as the players turn up or as a part session in its own right and any combination of players can be used to suit the needs/theme of the session.

 

Staying on the Ball and Combination Play should be encouraged but letting the children play without much intervention would help with decision making and overall fun for the kids.
