Races (Tag) (15 mins)

Organization:

- 30x30 yards grid as shown.

- 3 teams of 4 or adjust according to size (red, blue, white)

Instructions:

- White: players from one team start as a target, outside each side of the grid.

- Red: players start inside the grid and have to high five white team players and exchange position (1 point)

- Blue: same as red (1 point for every exchange).

- See progressions where 'defenders' are added.

Coaching Points/Questions:

- Can I keep my head up and find the open target?

- Once I identify the open target, can I communicate and let him/her know I'm coming to high five.

- Accelerate towards the target.

Progressions:

- One team becomes a defending team. Once they tag all four players from one team, they switch and losing team becomes tagging team.

Technical Repetitions (30 mins)

Organization:

- Same grid as before with the addition of a smaller grid inside at the center.

- Same teams as prior activity.

Instructions:

- Red team: starts inside the grid, 1 ball per player. Each player has to pass to a white team player and follow the pass (1 point for each pass). Cannot pass and then receive from the same target/player consecutively.

- White team: starts outside the grid, 1 player per side. Each player receives from red, and joins the grid in order to then pass to a target again (1 point). Cannot pass and then receive from the same target/player consecutively.

- Blue team: Each player with a ball. Each player gets a point for splitting a line by dribbling.

- 2 minute intervals, each team goes once.

- SEE PROGRESSIONS.

Coaching Points/Questions:

- Can we keep our head up when we dribble to identify open space?

- Can I communicate with target so that we make sure that he/she receives the ball?

- If pressure is in front, can I do a drag back: can I roll the ball towards me with the sole of the foot? Identify the open gap, and turn?

Progressions:

(1) Red/White: After each team goes once, now we add the condition of the smaller grid. If a player dribbles through the center before passing then they get 3 points for each pass. Blue: has now 1 ball and splits players with passes.

(2) Blue team becomes defending team.

Coaching Points/Questions:
