Warm up drill as my team wait to play

As my team wait for their game to start, how would you exercise them
Asked using Sportplan Mobile App

Hi there,

The warm up is vital to getting your players ready for the game both physically and mentally. This means they're prepared for the game to start plus will reduce the risk of injury. 

Use this drill below to get the players comfortable with the ball at their feet and making passes. Whilst half the team do this, the physical warm up around the outside will continue with the rest of the players. This should be a mix of running and dynamic stretches.

This drill is great for times when you have limited space or time to warm up!

Description:

Split your players into two groups.

Half of the group runs around the outside of the square for one minute at 60% pace.

At the same time the other half of your team are working inside the grid. Half of the players have a have a ball. Players must move and call for the pass when they do not have a ball.

Players work in each area twice (2 runs around the outside and 2 times inside the area).


Coaching Points:

Players should be talking when inside the area, calling for the ball when they haven't got it and putting a name on the pass when they do.

Players should also be aware of what is around them and looking to turn and pass as soon as they have the ball, and they should go looking to receive a pass as soon as they have passed themselves.
