1 vs 1 time - 10 minutes (10 mins)

Equipment:

- Field split up into grids side ways across field 10 yds x width of field.

- Players split up into pairs with each group having 1 ball.

Organization:

- Players work in 1 vs 1 situations with the goal of dribbling the ball over the line at each end.

- Once they cross the goal line they leave the ball for the other person and turn to play defense.

- If defender wins the ball they instantly try to cross their line.

- Play for 1 minute and switch pairings up by either random switching or ladder where player who scored most move right and player with less points moves left.

Key Coaching Points:

- Remind them to use the moves and skills we've been working on.

- Play with the ball in front of you working to move forward.

- Smaller controlled touches trying to keep ball close to your feet.
