The session begins with a warm-up exercise that focuses on the upper body. The second exercise takes the form of a passing circuit. To end, players participate in a 7v7 game where they can score from all angles.

Warm-up: Core strength

Organisation 

  • Players work in pairs or in teams and complete mini-challenges to improve core strength – be creative and create a winning environment
  • Ask players to pick their opponents and try to beat them

 Ways to make the exercise easier

  • Let players have one knee on the floor to give extra support

 Ways to make the exercise harder

  • Require the players to hold the position for ten seconds before starting the game

Great questions to ask the children

  • Which parts of your body do you feel are working to provide balance?
  • How can you strengthen your core stability?
  • Do you feel well balanced on both the right and left sides?

Safety tips

  • Make sure players are not wearing watches
  • Create a safe playing area

Skill development: Passing Circuit

Organisation

  • Organise eight players in a pass-and-move pattern
  • Players pass through the gates in a sequence and follow their pass  
  • Challenge the group to complete ten passes without the ball touching the cones 

 Ways to make the exercise easier

  • Make the gates wider and closer

 Ways to make the exercise harder

  • Make the gates smaller and further away
  • Add a second ball

 Great questions to ask the children

  • Can you focus on the strength and accuracy of your passes?
  • What is the best part of the foot to use when making a short pass?
  • Can you play first-time passes?

Safety tips

  • Create a safe playing area

Game application: 7v7 game with triangle goals

Organisation

  • Organise a normal game for 7v7 but create triangular goals
  • Each team has one goalkeeper who tries to defend each side of the goal
  • If you have more than two goalkeepers, then rotate them or create two triangular goals at each end

 Ways to make the exercise easier

  • Make the goals bigger

 Ways to make the exercise harder

  • Make the goals smaller

 Great questions to ask the children

  • Can you pass the ball around the triangle in order to try to shoot into an empty side?
  • Can you disguise your passing, so that the goalkeeper cannot predict where you will shoot from?
  • Goalkeepers – can you move your feet quickly and shuffle from side to side to cover your triangle?

 Safety tips
