SAQ (15 mins)

Organization:

- 25x25 yard square as shown, or adjust as necessary. The bigger the area, the harder for the tagging team and more fun for most players.

- 4 teams of 4 players.

Instructions:

- First 7 minutes, do SAQ, finish with short sprints and races. Have players start from the ground at some point.

- Last 7 minutes, do activity above (tag game). White team is a target and works with Red team. Red and white get a point every time they high five each other and switch positions. If players get tagged, they have to sit down. Blue team has to tag red and/or white team, as soon as they tag all players from one of the 2 teams, they now change teams.

Coaching Points/Questions:

- Can we recognize pressure and turn to safety/open space?

Technical Repetitions (25 mins)

Organization:

- Same grid as used in prior activity.

- White team: 4 targets, no balls.

- Red team: 1 ball each, inside the grid.

- Blue team: 1 ball each, inside the grid.

Instructions:

- Red team: pass the ball to a player from the white team (targets), and follows pass to switch positions (cannot receive as target from that same player, consecutively). (1 point for a successful pass and switch).

- White team: works with red team (1 points for successful switch).

- Blue team: dribble and split players for points (1 point each split).

- SEE PROGRESSIONS

Coaching Points/Questions:

- Can we dribble with our head up and immediately recognize the open target?

- Can we recognize the traffic in front of us, slow down and turn into an open channel/space?

Progressions:

(1) Add grid in the middle (as shown) and players now get 3 points if they dribbled through grid at some point before switching with target player (3 points). Blue team has now 1 ball and splits with a pass.

(2) Blue team now defends. If they steal ball, they can score on mini goals added to corners. White and red teams are allowed to u-turn now.

Fully Opposed (25 mins)

Organization:

- Expand prior grid, as shown, more rectangular shaped.

Instructions:

- White team is a target team. Blue and red play in the middle. Teams score a point by passing and receiving from a target. They cannot score with the same target twice in a row. First team to 5 points wins.

- Once winning team reaches five points, target who receives the ball dribbles into grid and new game is live immediately (losing team becomes target). Transition has to be fast.

Coaching Points/Questions:

- Can we turn away from traffic quickly and find open target?

- Can we lead our opponent to think we are going one way and then find a different arget right away?
