The  game  of  soccer  has  a  history  of  many  thousands  of  technically  proficient  players   who  are  unable  to  realize  their  potentials  because  they  could  not  execute  under  the   pressures  of  the  game.  Skillful  players  are  those  that  are  able  to  play  under  all  the   pressures  that  the  game  demands.  For  the  development  of  any  soccer  player’s   individual  skills  and  tactics,  it  is  important  that  they  have  a  basic  understanding  of   simple  skills  and  tactics.  As  coaches,  we  have  a  greater  impact  and  influence  on  how   well  players  master  these  skills.  The  way  we  (as  coaches)  deliver  &  teach  these  skills   has  a  tremendous  bearing  on  how  well  they  grasp  it  and  continue  to  execute   through  their  playing  career.     PRACTICE  MAKES  PERMANENT     As  players  &  coaches,  we  have  all  heard  &  use  the  old  expression  “practice  makes   perfect”.  It  is  true  that  you  must  practice  in  order  to  improve  your  game.   However,  it  is  possible  that  practice  may  lead  to  bad  playing  habits  as  well  as   good  playing  habits.     Therefore  practice  only  makes  perfect  when  you  practice  perfectly.     It  is  therefore,  of  the  utmost  importance  that  we  as  coaches  observe,  follow  &   execute  some  basic  disciplines  in  order  to  maximize  the  use  of  the  90  minutes  or   so  that  we  have  with  our  players  once,  sometimes  twice  a  week.     Always  have  a  practice  plan  (fly  by  wire  is  not  recommended)   Taylor  your  practice  sessions  to  match  the  level/age  of  your  team   Be  the  first  one  to  arrive  at  practices  and  set  up  your  grids  &  plans   Start  on  time  –  explain  your  plan  for  the  day’s  session   Lay  out  your  expectations  at  the  beginning  (remember  its  not  boot  camp)   Keep  sessions  efficient,  fun  &  productive  (its  not  a  social  hang  out  either)   Keep  players  focused  on  the  task  at  hand  –  bring  them  back  if  they  stray   Allow  for  input  and  feedback  from  your  players;  but  have  the  final  say   Be  aware  of  any  barriers  and/or  distractions  and  quickly  remove  them   Finish  practice  sessions  on  a  timely,  positive  basis   Make  sure  ALL  players  are  being  picked  up  before  you  leave       TODAY’S  SESSION  INCLUDES  A  THREE-­‐PART  DEMONSTRATION:     PART  ONE  –  TECHNICAL  WARM  UP   1. Elements  of  simple  2-­‐touch  pass  &  receive  (emphasis  on  foot  technique)   2. Progression:  one  touch,  emphasis  on  the  elements  of  a  good  pass  (pace,   accuracy  &  timing)  

3. Progression:  using  different  body  parts  to  receive  the  ball   4.

Multiple  player  movement  involving  passing  &  receiving   2. Emphasis  on  the  incorporation  of  all  aspects  of  the  element  of  a  good   pass  (Pace,  Accuracy,  Timing  of  the  run  &  Timing  of  the  pass)   3. Progression:  one  minute  timed  session,  finish  strong   4. Progression:  Check  to  the  pass  (emphasis  on  eye  contact/communication)     PART  THREE  –  SMALL  SIDED  GAME     QUESTION  &  ANSWER  SESSION   I  have  provided  this  information  below  for  you  to  go  over  and  use  later  as   you  see  fit  to  teach  and  educate  your  players;  we  will  NOT  go  over  each  and  every   one  of  these  items  today.     TYPES  OF  PASSING   • INSIDE  FOOT-­‐PUSH  PASS:  Played  along  the  ground  with  the  inside  of  the   foot.  Effective  over  distances  of  five  to  twenty-­‐five  yards.  Tips-­‐  Time  the   approach  so  that  the  non-­‐kicking  foot  is  planted  alongside  the  ball  and  is   pointing  towards  the  target.  Turn  the  kicking  foot  out  so  that  the  inside  of   the  foot  is  towards  the  ball.  Strike  through  the  middle  of  the  ball,  locking   the  ankle  at  the  moment  of  contact  with  the  ball.  Follow  through  towards   the  target  with  the  kicking  foot.     • LOW  DRIVE:  Played  firmly  along  the  ground  with  the  instep  (inside  the  laces   of  the  shoes).  An  effective  method  of  changing  play,  crossing  the  ball  and   shooting  towards  an  opponent’s  goal.  Tips-­‐  Approach  the  ball  from  a  slight   angle,  plant  the  kicking  non-­‐kicking  foot  alongside  the  ball  and  towards   the  target.  Strike  diagonally  across  the  ball  using  the  instep.  Ensure  that   the  knee  and  head  are  over  the  ball  at  the  moment  of  contact.  Follow   through  with  the  kicking  foot  towards  the  target.     • LOFTED  PASS:  Played  in  the  air  with  the  area  of  instep  just  above  the  big  toe.   Effective  in  making  passes  in  the  air  over  twenty-­‐five  yards.  Tips-­‐  Approach   the  ball  from  a  slight  angle,  plant  the  non-­‐kicking  foot  alongside  but  to   the  back  of  the  ball,  strike  diagonally  through  the  underside  of  the  ball,   leaning  back  slightly  at  the  moment  of  contact  to  loft  the  ball.  Follow   through  with  the  kicking  foot  towards  the  target.     • CHIP:  Played  in  the  air  with  the  front  of  the  foot  (top  of  the  toes)  through  the   underside  of  the  ball.  Effective  in  getting  the  ball  in  the  air  quickly.  Its  


backspin  will  drop  it  and  stop  it  in  the  target  area  quickly.  Tips-­‐  Approach   the  ball  either  at  slight  angle  or  from  directly  behind,  stab  through  the   underside  of  the  ball  with  the  top  of      the  toes.  Do  not  follow  through  with   the  kicking  foot.   SWERVING  PASS:  Played  in  the  air  with  the  inside  of  the  foot.  Effective  in   bending  the  ball  either  gradually  or  sharply  and  is  used  mostly  at  corner   kicks  or  for  crossing  a  ball.  It  is  especially  effective  at  direct  free  kicks  just   outside  the  opponent’s  penalty  area.  Tips-­‐  Approach  the  ball  from  a  sharp   angle,  plant  the  non-­‐kicking  foot  alongside  the  ball  and  pointing  towards   the  target,  strike  sharply  under  but  towards  the  outside  of  the  ball  using   the  instep,  leaning  slightly  away  at  moment  of  contact.  Follow  through   towards  the  target.  


ELEMENTS  OF  THE  PERFECT  PASS   PACE:  The  weight  of  the  pass  must  always  take  into  consideration  the   receiver  of  the  pass.  The  receiver  must  be  able  to  deal  with  the  pass  quickly   and  efficiently  and  to  play  the  ball  with  one  touch  when  necessary.  

ACCURACY:  Whether  the  ball  is  played  to  the  feet  or  into  the  path  of  the   receiver,  the  ball  should  be  played  to  an  area  that  would  enable  the  receiver   to  execute  efficiently.  

TIMIMG  OF  THE  PASS:  The  pass  must  be  played  at  a  time  that  the  receiver  is   looking  at  the  passer  and  is  just  beginning  to  move.  

TIMING  OF  THE  RUN:  The  run  initiates  the  pass.  The  intended  receiver   should  ensure  that  the  passer  is  looking  at  her  and  has  the  ball  under  control   before  she  makes  a  run.  

SUPPORT  FOR  THE  PASSER:  Intelligent  movements  by  the  players  not  in   possession  of  the  ball  will  create  more  options  for  the  passer.  Supporting   players  must  ensure  that  they  are  “open”  to  receive  a  pass.  




RECEIVING  &  BALL  CONTROL   Receiving  and/or  Ball  control  is  not  an  end  product  but  merely  a  means  to  an   end.  Your  first  touch  must  set  you  up  for  your  next  action-­‐  a  short  pass,  a  long  pass,  a   dribble  or  a  shot  on  goal.   • CHEST-­‐LOFTED  CONTROL:  Move  into  the  path  (flight)  of  the  ball,  keeping   your  eye  on  the  ball.  At  the  moment  of  contact  have  your  weight  on  the  balls   of  both  feet  with  your  knees  flexed.  Extend  the  arms  out  and  turn  the  hands   so  that  the  thumbs  are  up.  This  will  expand  the  controlling  surface  (the   chest).  Relax  the  knees  and  lean  back  to  “cushion”  the  ball  at  contact.  Rotate   the  body  to  control  the  ball  down  and  away  from  the  opposing  pressure.  




CHEST-­‐BALL  BOUNCING  OFF  THE  GROUND:  Move  into  the  path  of  the  ball,   quickly  assessing  the  bounce.  Have  your  weight  on  the  balls  of  your  feet   while  leaning  forward  from  the  waist  to  be  over  the  ball.  Extend  your  arms   and  turn  your  hands  with  the  thumbs  down.  As  the  ball  hits  the  ground,   prepare  quickly  for  your  next  action.   THIGH-­‐LOFTED  CONTROL:  Move  into  the  path  of  the  ball.  Raise  the  thigh   just  as  the  ball  is  about  to  make  contact.  Be  light  on  your  feet  to  make  any  last   minute  adjustments.  At  the  moment  of  contact  drop  the  controlling  leg  down   slightly  to  cushion  the  ball.  Use  the  fleshy  part  of  the  upper  leg  to  receive  the   ball  and  as  the  ball  hits  the  ground  prepare  quickly  for  your  next  action.   INSTEP-­‐LOFTED  CONTROL:  Move  into  the  flight  of  the  ball.  Be  light  on  your   feet  to  make  any  last  minute  adjustments.  Just  before  the  moment  of  contact   raise  the  leg  slightly  with  the  controlling  foot  pointed  forward  and  at  a  very   slight  downward  angle.  At  the  moment  of  contact  drop  the  leg  a  little  to   cushion  the  impact  of  the  ball.  As  the  ball  hits  the  ground  prepare  quickly  for   your  next  action.  

  USE  INSIDE  OR  OUTSIDE  OF  THE  FOOT   To  control  balls  that  are  on  the  ground   To  manipulate  the  ball  into  space,  away  from  pressure  and  to  set  up  the  next   action  in  the  game.   Tips-­‐  Move  into  the  line  of  the  ball.  Quickly  assess  the  position  of  your  team   mates  and  opponents  and  also  the  immediate  area  around  you.  The  above  will   determine  whether  to  use  the  inside  or  outside  of  the  foot  to  control  the  ball.  At   the  moment  of  contact,  direct  the  ball  into  the  appropriate  area  away  from   pressure.  Your  first  touch  on  the  ball  should  set  you  up  for  the  next  move/action.     • WEDGE  CONTROL:  Wedge  control  is  the  use  of  the  sole  of  the  foot  to  wedge   and  push  a  lofted  pass  into  the  space  in  front  of  you.  It  is  also  the  use  of  the   inside  or  outside  of  the  foot  to  wedge  and  drag  the  ball  into  the  space  beside   you.   Tips-­‐  Move  into  the  line  of  the  ball.  Immediately  assess  the  space  around  you.   If  the  sole  of  the  foot  is  used,  it  is  important  to  be  light  on  the  feet  to  make  any   quick  adjustments.  At  the  moment  the  ball  contacts  the  ground  the  controlling   foot  must  be  over  the  ball  with  heel  down  and  the  toes  raised.  The  foot  wedges   the  ball  to  prevent  it  from  bouncing  up.  If  the  inside  of  the  foot  is  used,  the  inside   of  the  foot  and  inside  of  the  leg  should  be  over  the  ball  at  the  moment  it  contacts   the  ground.  The  body  should  be  leaning  inwards  and  the  ball  should  be  dragged   inwards.  The  inside  of  the  foot  prevents  the  ball  from  bouncing  up,  the  inside  of   the  leg  creates  a  larger  controlling  surface  and  is  a  good  “back  up”  for  control  if   the  timing  is  not  quite  right.  If  the  outside  of  the  foot  is  used,  the  outside  of  the   foot  and  outside  leg  should  be  over  the  ball  with  your  body  leaning  outwards   • -

and  the  ball  should  be  dragged  outwards.  In  all  methods  of  wedge  control,  the   first  touch  should  set  up  the  next  action  in  the  game.       Note:  Many  mistakes  in  ball  control  are  caused  by  indecision  because  players  fail   to  make  an  early  selection  in  the  method  of  receiving  the  ball.  Often  this  results   in  players  being  upright  and  stiff  at  the  moment  of  contact  and  thus  the  ball   rebounds  off  the  body  instead  of  being  “cushioned”.  There  is  a  body  shape  to   each  method  of  ball  control;  the  body  should  never  be  upright  at  the  moment  of   contact  for  ball  control.

12:20-1:30pm GOALKEEPING BASICS FOR ALL AGES SERGIO TABORDA, BSA Goalkeeper Director/u12 Girls Coach

BD Shooting w/Wall Pass & 1v1

Activity Description The Exercise: The first person in line 1 (player A) dribbles at speed and takes a shot on the goal. Once player A shoots the first person in Line 2 (player B) begins to dribble at the coach. Player A should now show back to the ball for a wall pass. Player B should pass the ball to player A and move “off the coaches shoulder” for a return pass. Note: It’s important that player B starts with the dribble. In the final third of the field, space gets very limited as defenses become more compact. You want player B to commit the defender (the coach) prior to releasing the pass. Once Player B shoots the ball, he/she should transition to defend the first person in line 3 in a live 1v1.

1v1 Passive to 1v1 Active

Activity Description The Game: Coach yells Go! to start the movement. White Sprints across to the cone directly in front of them. Red should dribble with speed (upon hearing the Go command) at the cone directly in front of them. Red should cut the ball back behind a “passive white” (white doesn’t try to win the ball). Once the cutback takes place a defender (Grey) releases from the disc around 8yds from the endline to confront the attacker. This is an active 1v1 to goal. Rotation: • White now joins the attacking line. • Grey moves to Whites line (sprinting line). • Red would join the active defending line (Grey). Note: Coach should call Go! once the attacker either loses the ball or shoots it. This will keep the game moving!

1v1 Touch a Disc and Defend

Activity Description The Game: Red plays the ball out to White. Red moves to the end of the White line. White receives ball and begins 1 v1 with Grey (the previous shooter). When white either shoots the ball or loses possession. The red line immediately plays a ball out to the first person in the top line (white). White (the previous attacker) must now "touch a disc and defend". Grey moves to the serving line Rotation: Server to shooting line, Shooter to defender (immediately), Defender to serving line. Coach yells "Play it Out" or if your players are alert they should do so on their own immediately at the shot or loss of possession. Note: There is no need for differing colors it just helps you to visually see the rotation.

2 Shots followed by 1v1

Activity Description The Set-up: 2 goals, several discs, plenty of balls. Break players into two groups. Playing area should be a double penalty box, 36 yards long x 44 yards wide. Coach should have several balls. The Exercise: When the coach yells GO! • The first player in each line dribbles quickly to the edge of the penalty area and shots the ball. • After shooting the ball, Red should turn quickly to look for a pass from the coach while white transitions to defend (pictured below). • A live 1v1 follows. Play until the ball goes out of bounds or a goal is scored. Rotation: Coach should serve ball into the Red team for 5 minutes than serve to the White.
