Hi coaches, great job last week!
Next week will be crazy hair day and we will do stations once more....just a heads up!!
Focus: defending and attacking
Defending coaching points
Defender's feet should be about a shoulder width apart, legs should be slightly bent, stay on toes so you can react to any sudden changes of direction by the attacker (ready position, but stagger legs more like boxer stance).
-keep ball close
-attack with speed
You may want to start game without any balls and then transition into having the nonblobs dribblingin grid. You can break the blob whenever you feel necessary.
part 2: Coach says....
try some of the movements included in this video to improve agility and coordination
(include defending stance)
and with the ball
similar to what time is it Mr. Wolf (however kids seem to like sleeping bears better than wolves).
20 x 20 grid. Mark each corner with different colored cones (look in the cart if you need more colours). Players dribbling in grid, coaches or players tries to win ball from fish. Toe touches or storks if shark attack is successful. To give players an opportunity to work on their offensive skills, when coach yells a specific color players must dribble to that colored corner trying to get past sharks.
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
Need one more...pick one of your favourites from the last few weeks!
Games! Cheers! Snack!
