Fall ODP Week 9 1st Session (10 mins)

Setup:

Use four cones to create a square-shaped grid about 30-40 yards wide. Depending on the number of players, decrease, or increase, the size of the grid.

Lay down randomly spaced cone gates through the grid. Each gate should be 2-3 yards wide. There should be almost as many gates as there are players.

All players start inside the grid with a soccer ball.

Decide on a time limit that each game will be played for. 1-3 minutes per game should be plenty.

Instructions:

Dribbling Gates

On the coach’s signal, each player begins dribbling through as many gates as they can under control.

Players can not dribble through the same gate twice in a row, nor can they dribble in the same repetitive pattern through the cones.

Players are responsible for keeping track of the number of gates they dribble through. Each gate counts as one.

Players are not allowed to touch other players’ soccer balls.

At the end of each round, players immediately freeze where they are and the coach asks players to raise their hands if they dribbled through more than 5 gates, 10 gates, and so on until they find the player, or players, who dribbled through the most gates.

After each game, players rest and stretch for 2-3 minutes before beginning the second. At least two rounds should be completed, but feel free to play more.

Variations:

Weak foot – Players can only dribble using their weak foot.

Grid size – Increase the grid size to decrease the amount of traffic players must dribble through. Decrease the grid size to challenge players with more traffic and tighter spaces.

1v1 – Players partner up with one ball and compete against each other to successfully dribble through as many gates as possible while their partner attempts to steal the ball and do the same.

Partner passing –Players partner up and attempt to move together dribbling and passing the ball to each other through the gates.

 

Coaching Points:

Like every warm up activity, start slow. Make sure the players go at a pace that warms their bodies and raises their heart rates without putting their muscles in danger of over stretching too soon.

Players should do dynamic stretching and jogging before jumping straight into this activity to avoid muscle strains.

Encourage the players keep their eyes up while dribbling to build good habits and to avoid collisions with other players.

Remind the players to keep close control of the ball with constant touches. Keeping the ball close will help players change direction quickly and attack an open gate.

Challenge the players to dribble through as many gates as they possibly can within the time period! Players should dribble, under control, as quickly as they can.
