Team Building drill for girls

Hi everyonehas anyone got a good team building drill i can use for a u15's girls team please?I have 18 girls signed on and they all attend training religiously, but we often have a split in the team as there are two groups from two different schools. They tend to train well together but during a match there is the odd occasion when they don't talk to each other or they only pass to their school mates...

Hi Duane, 

This can often be the problem with younger teams and it is key to get a good spirit going within your group. In training, I recommend drills under the conditioned games section - any of these games are fun and will get your team working together and communicating. Break the ice and mix up the two groups together. Kabadi is extremely popular and fun, I've included it for you below.

Another thing you could do off the pitch is to organise more social gatherings and actitivies. I have found with my ladies team that we have a terrific team spirit and play so well together because we're all very good friends away from the pitch, and we regularly arrange team outings. It doesn't have to be expensive, you could arrange a game of bowling or go for a team meal!

Hope that helps!

Description:

2 teams. Each team has their own area in which they keep possession by passing the ball around.

The other team can send one player across to try and win the ball for their side. If they manage to win possession the roles reverse and the other team passes the ball inside their own area.

The winning team is the first team to put 10 passes together without losing the ball.


Coaching Points:

The aim of this drill is for players to practice winning back and keeping possession!

With more advanced players, allow 2 players in to the opposition's area to try and win back possession for their team.
