Fun Drills for under-8's

I'm supporting an under 8's team, and would like some advice and drills/ideas to help bring on their skills and also keep them engaged?

Hi there,

We have plenty of fun drills to keep your junior side engaged and most importantly, having fun! Here's just one example to get you started. With junior players, it's key to keep them coming back to the game by including fun actitives that will also develop their skills. 

This relay will get your players looking up and improving their skills dribbling with the ball. It'll keep your players engaged by racing against one another, making it fun whilst they try beat the other team! 

Take a look at our Football drills for more ideas, and try them in your next training session. 

Hope that helps! 

The Sportplan Plan

Crazy Dribble Relay

Description:

Four groups are placed at four corners of the square.

The two groups to one side of the square dribble the ball around the square in a clockwise fashion and the other two dribble the ball around the square in a anti-clockwise fashion.

Keep going until all the team have been at least once.


Coaching Points:

Keep the head up and use all parts of both feet.

Dribble into corners slowly but accelerate away. Players will be racing in opposite directions so remind them to keep their head up to avoid any collisions!
