Warm-Up (20 mins)

Organization:

-20 x 20 yard area

-Each player has a ball

Instructions:

Part 1

Each player has a ball and is introduced to a few different types of dribbling techniques:

Messi, Ronaldo, Xavi and Ineiesta

Players will be asked how they might use each type, after they have been introduced:

-If you have a lot of space which technique might be the best?

-If you are in a very tight space how could you dribble?

Part 2

-Space is the same, now all but two players have a ball.

-The players with out the ball are defenders and hold a pinnie in their hand.

-Defenders are trying to simply touch another players ball with their foot (They are not trying to tackle)

-When a Defender touches a ball they take that ball and give their pinnie to the attacker.

-That attacker then becomes the tagger/defender

-The goal is to get tagged the fewest times and to not be it when time runs out.

Coaching Points:

1) Using the proper dribbling technique/surface of the foot

2) Looking for/identifiying where the open space.

3) Aware of the defenders and other attackers
