Smoke Free Soccer: Coaches Manual: Chapter 10
THROUGH MANY GOALS—10
Have your kids practice scoring (achieving) their goals—it’s a great way to get them used to the feeling of success. One goal they should always strive for is to stay tobacco-free. Here’s a game where it’s easy to score goals, but only when they’re in control and making good decisions.
- Each player on the team is with a partner.
- Whoever has the ball is attacking, whoever doesn’t is defending.
- The player who dribbles the ball through either side of any of the goals gets a point.
- The game keeps going after goals are scored, with the player in possession of the ball trying to score another goal.
- Play games of 60-90 seconds.
- Make sure that players keep their heads up when dribbling through a goal as there may be another pair coming through the other way.
- Make goals at least four yards wide. The more players at the practice, the more goals needed.
- Individual attacking and defending.
