Activity 1 - Physical literacry combined w/ changing of speed

The opening activity is focussed on allowing the players to get used to changing the speed of their dribble whilst also looking to change direction. The focus is on being Agile, keeping their Balance when they change direction quickly, the Co-ordination of their limbs when moving away quickly and a focus onto their speed (Running mechanics).

1) no ball, as they approach a pole, how can they move around it? (30 seconds)

2) No ball, as they approach a pole, how can they duke out the pole? (30 seconds)

3) No ball, as they approach a pole, how can they change direction and increase their speed? (30 seconds)

WHY do we need to change direction and speed?

4) Now introduce a ball, how can you move around it?

5) How can you now be creative and move around the pole?

Acitivity 2 - Dribbling Gates

Players will play 1 versus 1 in an organised chaos setting there are lots of gates but also lots of moving players. This is to recreate the chaos setting of a soccer game. Ask the players to place out the cones in the form of gates and to arrange them any size that they want. 5 gates each group.

Rep scheme = 60 seconds each

Rep 1 & 2 - Dribbler tries to dribble through a gate but the defender's job is to only block the goal. Can you beat your partners score? 1) Where and what are you looking for when you change the pace of your dribble?

Rep 3 & 4 - Dribbler tries to dribble through a gate. The defender can now win the ball and they can attack any goal. Can you beat your partners score during the game? 2) What type of touch do you need to take when you change the pace of your dribble?

Rep 5 & 6 - Dribbler tries to dribble through a gate. How can they now lose the defender after they have got through a gate? 3) As soon as you have got away from the defender who are you looking to get in front of?

Activity 3 - Dribbling Gates

Players will not get into groups of 3's. The objective is to get as many points as possible by dribbling through the gates. You can score in any gate but the focus still remains the same. How can they use their change of pace and change of direction to their advantage. If the other team wins it, they now become the attacking team and you are the defending team.

Rep Scheme - 3 minutes each repetition

Rep 1-4 - Can you beat each other's score? Rotate the groups every rep. Reds will remain where they are, the colours groups with rotate.
