Gate Challenge (10 mins)

Gate Challenge - 20 x 30 yard area

 

Start the game off without a ball with the players running and then add a soccer ball for the next round.

 

Coach asks all players to grab a ball and bring it in. Last ones a rotten egg!

When the coach says "Go" players must dribble their ball though as many cone gates as they can in the time allowed. (60-90 seconds) Ask players how they did while they catch their breath. IE. Did anyone get 4 or more, how about 6 or more, did anyone get 10 or more. Did anyone go without colliding into another player. How can we make sure we do not collide? That's right, we have to look around with our eyes while we are dribbling.

 

Go for 3-4 rounds and each round players must beat their own score from the previous round.

 

Do a weakest foot round!

RED ROVER, RED ROVER (10 mins)

RED ROVER, RED ROVER - 20 x 30 yard zone

 

All players start on one side of the area and the coaches are in the middle. The coach says "Red Rover, Red Rover, send everyone over" The players will try to dribble to the other side without getting tagged by a coach inorder to score a point. The idea is that each child gets a point for making across safely. At the beggining let everyone get a point but as they get the hang of it you can try to tag some of them. At the end of the game as players questions like " Who crored at least one point?". "DId anyone get two points?" Did anyone go the whole time without getting tagged?

 

Then play another round but they have to try to beat their score if possible.

Open Goals (10 mins)

OPEN GOALS: 20x30 yard coned area

 

Bring everyone in. Tell them they will be dribbling to a goal and kicking the ball into the net. once they score they will grab their ball and bring it back to the center and they must give one of the coaches a "High Five". Once they "High Five" the coach they can then go and score on a different goal. How many goals can you score?

-Play for two rounds of a couple of minutes with a rest in between.

If you have another coach you can make them a ball stealer for the next round to add a challenge for the later round.

3v3 Game View

 

As you can see, we play two 3v3 games on a larger field that is lined for U7 or U8. We set up Pugg goals and play across the fields. Subs are sitting in the larger goals ready to be brought into the game when needed.

 

Teams play 3v3 (No goalies). Coaches have balls in hand ready to throw one back in when the ball goes out of bounds. This keeps the game going and allows the coach to influence the game a bit. IE- Help a weaker player get the ball more.

 

To the right, is the kick off set-up to begin a game or after a goal is scored. Defending team has to back up a few feet to begin.

 

There are "NO" goalkicks or corner kicks in these age groups. Coaches are ready to say "New Ball In" and the play resumes when the ball goes out of play.
