U4/5 practice - week of May 29

I will have you run another week with just your team and then we will do a round of stations next week again.  Next Thursday June 7 will be wacky hair day...please put the word out.  We will do games for the last 15 minutes again this week (see who plays who at the end), same format with horn to move to games and horn to end.

Warm-up/Agility - coach says
start no balls, move to with balls - get them moving and work on some skills, toe taps, shooting, dribbling, tic-tocs, turns etc...
Warm up game:  Cow Dogs  (working on dribbling and defending)

Dribbling review - Fun Island
use the area you always work in

Obstacle course
I'll have the arches out, share them around, but use them to crawl under, dribble through or pass through...add cones to dribble around, a goal to shoot on etc...Dave had a haunted house theme last week which was fantastic, use you imaginations

1 v 1 attack
two goals, have half team on each side line, when you call their names they go and challenge a ball that you roll in, each team having a goal they need to score on

Have the kids just work on throw-in technique.  In pairs just throwing the ball back and forth (don't spend long, but it's important to review this)  
-Two hands on the ball, 
-all the way behind the head
-(TRY) and keep feet on the ground

Turn & Burn
Divide players into two teams – put them in different colored pinnis One team starts on one end of the grid with a ball each. Objective is for players with the ball to dribble towards the players without, who remain stationary. The coach shouts “Turn” and the players with the ball stop, turn and try to dribble back to their starting line. When the players without the ball here the coach shout “Turn” he players without the ball can release and try and steal the balls of the apposing team before they get back over the safe line. Take turns having both teams being attackers/defenders. Do not eliminate players who lose their ball. Let them have another go.
Variations: Introduce specific turns: big toe turn, little toe turn, pull back, etc.

Games:  3v3 - goalies optional
-focus on quick rotation of subs - every 3-4 minutes
-let's try throw-ins if it goes out the side, and just pass/kick ins if it goes out the end.

Tuesday:                                 Thursday:
1 v 4   7 v 10                        1 v 12   4 v 7
2 v 5   8 v 11                        2 v 11   5 v 8
3 v 6   9 v 12                        3 v 10   6 v 9
