Session 2 (15 mins)

Organization


- Create a 20 x 20 area with a net on each corner of the area

- Leading up to each net place 4 cones with enough space for the players to dribble through

- At the end of the cone line place a hurdle 3 yards away from the last cone

- Teams of 2 will start behind each hurdle 

Activity


- On the coaches call the players will jump the hurdle, dribble the ball through the cones and shoot at goal

 - The player will then pick the ball up, run back and place the ball back on the starting spot

 - As soon as then ball is back on the starting spot the next player in the team will go

 - Make it competitive by either saying first team back wins, team that scores the mots goals in a set time wins.

Progression


- Players two foot jump over the hurdle

- One foot jump

- Extra point for being creative 

- Ball hits the cone they start again

This Warm Up is all about physical literacy and movement skills particularly jumping and landing. The session should encourage the players to work on their movement skills and ball manipulation, under the pressure of time.

Session 3 (15 mins)

Organization


- Setup 5 goals across the end of the field including the 7v7 net

- Place a large cone 5 yards away from net one, 7 yards away from net two, 10 yards away from net three, 7 away from net four and 5 away from net 5

 - Place 3 small cones behind each large cone 2m separating each

 - Give each player a cone they will start at

 - Each player begins with a ball

Activity


- The players will attempt to score on each of the goals moving between them until they have done so

- They can move in any direction and any order

 - The first player to score in each goal wins

Progression


- Give each goal a number value 1, 2 or 3 and the players can score in any goal adding their points up as they go.

This session is all about the technique they are using. We are looking to get the players to use the inside of the foot or laces to strike the ball. Allow them to use the toe to start with and ask them why this may not be very successful.
