  • Get Them MovingCoach Dina Gentile
  • Challenges
  • Switch it Up• Encourage players to move from crowded to un-crowded spaces.• Ask players to keep their chins up.Activity:• 1st stage: Players will switch balls with a teammate.• 2nd stage: Switch and then explode around the perimeter cones.
  • Color the Field• Every player with a ball. We want to encourage them to move all around the rectangle or square we created on the field.• Coach can ask the players what color they want to be. Let’s give them an imagination and empower them.• You can add restrictions. Ex: You can not be too close to the coach. This will teach them to move away from pressure (the defender!).• Have fun! Create your own color. The kids will love to color up your work of art.
  • Let Them Play• Organize small sided games around the field.• Stop play when the players start to bunch up.• Ask them to keep their chin up and look to move into the open areas by dribbling out of pressure.• Stop play again when a player finds a way to open up the space. Point out what works when you play with your head up.
  • Find Those Teachable Moments!!!• These three activities will assist in getting your players to move, move, move!• Have fun with these activities. Use your voice and generate excitement to get the players engaged with the idea of spreading out and let them know why we need to create space.• Let’s remember to not only point out weaknesses, but be sure to celebrate the good plays as well.
