Lesson 1 - Basics skills

 

1- Move with the ball anyway you want. Go and inquire into different movements. What parts of the body can you use? What parts of the foot? Can you use your knee/head/shoulder/hands?

2 - Dribble with the left foot, right foot, both, outside of the foot, inside. Which feels best?

3 - Change direction. How can you change direction. Are there different ways? What part of the foot? What do you need to consider first before turning?

4 - Should you keep your head up or down when dribbling? why? (put a cone on their heads and balance as they dribble - trying to keep their heads up at all times).

5 - Introduce Happy Feet - pass the ball back and forth between your feet ten times. Toe Taps - ten taps on top of the ball. Dribble around the cone. 5 keep ups. Different rules for different numbers.

Finish with king/queen of the ring. Keep your ball while trying to kick your opponents out of the square.

Passing Skills (15 mins)

Lesson 1 - Passing

Setup : 2 cones. 2 players take 2 steps back from the cones.

Cones act as a gate.

1 - Inquire for a minute. How can you pass through the gate. How can you keep the ball under control. How can you stop the ball? Stop and show examples to the others.

2 - Show the correct technique and discuss how to pass with the inside of the foot and receive with the inside of the foot. Every child must take 2 touches.

3 - How many passes can they make in a minute?

4 - Try again and beat your score.

5 - Pass and Move. Pass and dribble to a different gate.

Progression: Pass outside of the foot. Receive the ball and move it outside the one and pass down the line. Move further away from the cones.

Regression: come closer to the cones.
