6U Curriculum Week 3



6U Week 3
Shooting

Warm Up – 10 minutes
Hand Signals
Coach stands at one end of the grid. All players with ball start on the line at the opposite side of the grid. The coach gives hand signals, without saying anything verbally, to have the players dribble: 1.) forward (hands/arms brought to the chest); 2.) stop (hands overhead); 3.) to the players’ right (hands/arms pointed to the left); 4.) to the players’ left (hands/arms pointed to the right); 5.) backward (hands/arms pointed away from the chest; or 6.) toward a cone at a corner of the gird (hands/arms pointed at the particular cone). Any sequence of signals may be used.

Activity – 5 minutes
Bowling
Groups of 3 players - Set up a group of 3-4 cones as “bowling pins” and have players take turn shooting to knock over pins. Have parents set up “pins' after each shot so players get lots of practice shooting

Coaching Points:
Players should avoid using the toe to kick
Ankle locked, toe down so they kick the ball with laces
Follow Through in the direction of the shot
Plant foot (non-shooting foot) should be even or just behind the ball

Activity – 5 minutes
Easter Egg Hunt
Put all balls in the middle of the field and players on the outside. On coach's signal, players run to a ball and shoot it into any goal. Repeat until all balls are in a goal. Coach times how long it takes for all balls to get in a goal. Repeat, encouraging players to beat the previous time.

Scrimmage – 20 minutes
Split players evenly into teams with 3-4 players each and play a game on each field. Have parents surround the field to help keep the ball in play. Give the players a 1 minute water break each 5 minutes.
