Paint the Field Dribbling:

All players will dribble their soccer ball in a 15Wx20L yard grid pretending that is a paintbrush and wherever it rolls it is painting the field. The players will try to paint as much of the area as possible in the time allotted.

Coach: Have the players write their names with the “Paintbrush” (Ball) can they “paint” different shapes? How big can they paint the shapes?

Variation 2: Ask the players to dribble only with the left foot, then with the right foot.

Guided question

How to stop the soccer ball?

When and how to unfreeze a player?
