Week 3 practice plan

Here is an outline for week 3 training. The goal is for the players to continue improving their skills.

  1. Passing and juggling: Warm up in pairs

  2. One touch: Four players, two tossing the ball and two returning it to the tosser with a particular body part. After returning the ball, quickly switch to the other tosser. Body parts to use follow this sequence: right foot, left foot, right thigh, left thigh, chest, head.

  3. Speed dribble: Players line up on any side of a square. Players dribble across the square and back as many times as possible within 60 seconds. The player that goes across the square the most times wins.

  4. 2v2+2 or 3v3+3

  5. Four-squares passing

  6. Four Small Goals

  7. Triange Goal Game: Make a triangle with three cones in the center if the field. The sides of the triangle each serve as a goal mouth so teams can shoot at three different goals. Place 2 goalies in the triangle and the 2 goalies must protect the three goal mouths. Two even teams play a normal soccer game, except they both can score on any of the three faces of the triangle for a point. The game is continuous and if a goalie catches the ball he just throws it out so the game continues. Version 2: Use two balls at the same time.

  8. 8v8 wide: Wide field with two goals in opposite corners to encourage spreading the field wide and making crossing passes.

For small sided games, award extra points for each successful wall pass, or require wall passes before shooting on goal.
