We made the most of the good weather to get outside and play some football and the kids loved it so much they played football all morning!
The session started with a warm up on the gym equipment outside on the playground before moving on to individual work with the ball using left then right foot. From there we progressed on to a traffic lights game with Ollie calling the shots.
The next drill was in a circle working in pairs. Each person dribbles in to the middle of the circle at their turn. When Alan called out "change" each player was to go back to the partner, pass and change over. Cones were then added to the middle of the circle so that each person can dribble through them. They then moved on to a figure of eight pattern.
After a break we went on to a shooting drill, dribbling through 2 comes then moving forwards to shoot. There was some fantastic goalkeeping from Callum and Kerrie during this drill but also some fantastic shooting from Hal and Callum (once again).
We finished off the session with a game / match with Hal commanding the midfield for his team and Callum creating great chances and scoring some very good goals.
We finished off with a penalty shoot out that everyone got involved with.
It was a great first session back and good to see everyone after the long summer break. At the end of the session the coaches conferred and awarded the Star of the week award to Hal. Congratulations Hal!
We look forward to seeing you all again this coming Saturday where the weather is predicted to be very nice once more!
