This week, Kendra will be running Lilian's Yellow team and Rory will be roaming.
Next week is crazy hair day and stations again!
Great job so far, keep having fun!!!
Focus this week:
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
Don't Crash the Car
Red Light, Green Light made fun....check out all the variations!
create many triangles in the grid
first round, how many triangles can you dribble through in 30 seconds
round two, must use sole of foot and turn out of the tirangle
round three, use scissor move to get our of triangle etc....
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.
Turn and Burn
Turn and Burn- dribbling with speed
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.
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
Games, cheers, snacks!!!
