Week 4 practice plan

Here is an outline for week 4 training. The goal is for the players to continue improving ball handling, speed in tight spaces, possession, and shooting.

  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. Shield-steal

  4. Tag: Every child dribbles a soccer ball in the space defined while trying to tag other players with their hand. Players cannot leave their own ball. Have them keep count of how many people they have tagged and, if playing twice in a row, see if players can tag more people than they did in the first game. Version 2: Players must tag other players on their knees.

  5. 2v2+2 or 3v3+3

  6. Four-squares passing

  7. Triangle Goal Game

  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, encourage possession (a certain number of consecutive passes before shooting) and shooting from distance.
