Our Harrison Development Game Day clinic mission is to provide players a better understanding of game rules, restarts, team shape and principles of play. This will contribute to their development as they graduate into our travel teams.

The Game Day clinic is also a great opportunity for us coaches to reinforce the learning outcomes of what we did during the week at our different locations. It also gives our younger non carded players the opportunity to execute the skill sets learned in a game environment. We will teach each week 1 rule/ restart and a principle of play. Our focus is to allow our younger kids to experience as much game like fun/competitive environment.

Our session plan contains 2 warm ups and a game structure. Please feel free to choose 1 warm up you would like to deliver base on the players ability levels.

In every session, We will use the MVP system to reward players. We will use this type of system in a matter to encourage players to do better each time. At the end of the session who ever has the most MVP points will win the MVP award.



Week 8: Corner Kicks - focus to teach players when Corner kicks are apply and what part of the field the kick is take it.

And teach to player that are receiving the ball to move around to create space

Game Instructions

  • On coaches command, a number is called out and the players with the respective number will become defender. They will try to
  • steal the ball and transition to score a goal in one of the pug goals. In the example on the diagram, #2 was called so all #2's will go todefend the opposite teams.
  • The players on the ball will gain points by keeping possession of the ball for the entire round (30 second rounds).
  • -You can also do this by shouting out the colors of the groups so the color you call will defend.
