This is for ages
U8, U10, U12, U14, U16. It is best ran with at least 4
but not more than 20 players.
Create a grid that is 30x30 yards.
Create 4 teams and have them stand at each of the four corner cones.
The coach stands outside the grid near the middle of 2 side cones
with a large supply of soccer balls.
The coach plays a football into the
centre of the grid and shouts out a command (such as “GO”) to begin
play. The first player in each of the 4 lines must sprint after the
ball in attempt to reach the ball first. Once the ball is won
cleanly, the player must hold possession from the other players for
5 seconds before passing the ball back to the coach. If any player
steals the ball from the person in possession, that player will then
attempt to hold possession for 5 seconds. A team scores a point by
successfully holding possession for 5 seconds and making a return
pass to the coach. The first team to reach 5 points wins.
* The coach can play different types
of balls such as flighted balls, bouncing balls, rolling balls,
balls with large amounts of top or back spin.
* Players should be taught to go after
the ball aggressively with speed, determination and vigour.
