U10/U13 boys - week of May 29

I will be at your practices this week.  Focus:  1 v 1 (defending) & goal keeping.
With the U13 boys, I am going to work on goal keeping, I will cycle each group through for a short 15 minute goal keeping session, then when you are working on the 1 v 1 drills you can use keepers when there is shooting involved.  Coaches if you could get the lads warmed up and then I will get going pretty quickly with the keeper training.
With the U10 boys, I will work with Corbett and Alan/Sandy/Rory's groups.  We will do a quick warm up with both your groups, where I will run the drill and we will all coach as you know the kids names.  After the warm up we will split off into our teams to work on agility and 1v1, where I will spend time with each group working on basic goal keeping skills and you will then work on 1 v 1 attack using goalies. 
Adrien/Jose and Matthew's groups you'll be working on your own.  If I have time to do some goal keeping with one/both of your groups I will.  We'll cycle through the agility ladders/hurdles as it is availible (ie) jump on whenever it fits.
Warm-up-dribble &/ passing grid.  Probably a little work in pairs doing tap backs in the air like last week is a good idea too (include jumping over a cone or ball for a little agility if you like).  See end of last weeks warm up post for more details.

Agility-ladders and hurdles and cones, use as availible

Shooting mechanics more tips
do a quick shooting drill to review shooting mechanics if you like

Drills for 1 v 1 (coaching points for defending and attack at end of drills section) (choose which you like or create/use your own version)
Kings court
-set up enough grids (slightly longer than wide and not super big 10x15 or so) for each pair
-make the grid on one end the kings court that you're trying to get to
-each grid plays 1 v 1 (keeping score) winners move towards kings court or stay in kings court, loosers move down (hint put weeker players close or in kings court to start so they don't feel stuck in the bottom court the whole time)
-to start, one person passes to partner and then the game is live, pass must be a good pass, person who scores passes it to other person have them switch ends
1v1 with shot
-one line with balls by goal post(defenders), one line 20ish yards out (attackers), defending line passes ball to attackers then it's live (really work on good close down and jockeying).  Ensure good pass to start and have them switch lines.
Win ball drill
-two lines facing net (or coming in from sides at top of 18) (or coming from either side of net) (or coming from behind each goal (make a second goal) coach plays ball in and then it's live 1 v 1
1v1 to goal
gauntlet drill
have the defenders move forward in the gauntlet if they win the ball (attacker goes in the grid as a defender if they lose the ball)

Coaching points
-quick close down
-delay/give space - don't commit- jockey
-watch ball not player
-boxer stance & on toes
-make the attacker make the mistake
-force to outside/weak side if you know it
-go for ball when attacker has pushed ball away from feet

-attack with speed
-keep ball close
-attack weak side if you know it
-try and catch them flat footed
-exploit them if too close

Defending tips/points

Fun offensive moves you could teach

Scrimmage - allies scrimmage for width if you like (create allies along each sideline where a wing player plays{if short on numbers have one wing player who plays for both teams ie. whichever team passes them the ball they go that way} can't tackle the ally players, must play to allies in order to score
