soccer coaching game on working as a team
|This game is called "Back to the
Castle!". It is a fun way to teach your players how to dribble with their heads up
and work as a team.
Age range: U6s to U10s.
Number of players: Use your whole squad.
Equipment: Four sets of coloured training vests, some flat cones and at least 12 balls.
Set-up: Divide your players into four teams and give them different coloured training vests to wear. If you don't have four different colours, base the teams on the colour shirts that the players are wearing. If you have four players wearing red shirts, for example, they are the red team.
Create a 30-yard square playing area. Use flat cones to mark out a three-yard square safe zone in each corner.
Each team is allocated one corner, which is that team's "castle".
The coach stands just outside the playing area with at least 12 balls. The more balls, the better.
