Technical Practice

Intro mechanics - keep ball close, head up, vary foot surface


Traffic light game 


Shout green for go and red for stop. Introduce animals to vary speed - snail is very slow dribble, snake is in and out dribble, crab is side to side dribble, tiger is quite fast, cheetah is super fast.

Do a warm up without a ball and then with a ball.

Progression - Move from shouting out the colour to holding up a cone: Hold up Green cone. - go,

hold up red cone - stop (freeze)


Players now need to dribble whilst keeping their head up so they can see what colour the traffic lights are.
