Bumper cars (10 mins)

Organization:

20x30 area

1 ball per player

Instructions:

Players drive their bumper cars trying not to bump into another bumper car or not the barriers (dribble outside area).

Its a race to x amount of pedal pushes (pinkie toe touches), but every time you 'bump' you lose x amount of pedal pushes (or you have to start counting from zero again).

Coaching Points:

Push pedal gently so don't go too fast and out of control (small pinkie toe touches) if lots of bumper cars around, if find somewhere where no bumper cars are, can you speed up to get their (bigger touches)

Watch out for other bumper cars (look up, head up)

Can you steer out of their way if about to crash (changes of direction)

Progressions:

Add defenders (people without bumper cars) who hold pinnies, if they bump you out your car (steal your ball) they get to drive it and you have to bump someone else out of their car

Dog Catcher (15 mins)

Organization:

20 x 20

every player with a ball

Instructions:

Every player is a dog running around the neighborhood, playing and having fun with their favorite toy (soccer ball). What's your favorite dog?

The coach is the dog catcher. The dogs must try to stay away from the dog catcher. If the dog catcher steals the soccer ball, he takes the dog to the Dog Pound. Once the dog catcher leaves the Pound the dogs can perform a skill (6 toe taps, 6 foundations, ball toss/catch, etc..) and then come back into the neighborhood.

Introduce them to the feint. If dogs do a feint in front of the dog catcher there is no way the dog catcher can steal their ball

Coaching Points:

1) Head up to look for space; Stay away from the dog catcher and other players

2) Use change of speed to beat the dog catcher and not crash into other dogs.

3) Feint: See where the space exists as dog catcher approaches, drop your shoulder one way and explode into the opposite direction (where the space is)

Progressions:

1) Now if dogs crash into each other they get hurt. They have to limp to the Animal Hospital where they do 10 jumping jacks to feel better. Once done they can return to play in the neighborhood.

2) Introduce the Step Over
