Grassroots Practices You Can Use - Learn to Train (Week 56)

By Staff, 11/27/17, 4:15PM EST


This week's session focuses on passing

Play. Inspire. Unite. 

The Player Development department continues to put together a practice for coaches to use with their players across the province.

Each week will focus on one of the three LTPD development stages at the Grassroots level, which includes Active Start, FUNdamentals, and Learn to Train.

In this week's session, the Player Development department has focused on the Learn to Train level.  

The objective is to penetrate the opposition by passing through them.

Players will begin working on physical literacy by trying to evade their opponent and pass through them.

After this, they will do this in a 2v2 small sided game.

Players will then go in to a 4v4 scenario where again they will be looking to penetrate the opposition while avoiding being offside.

Players then finish off in a game that is as close to the rules and regulations as they play on game day as players then have the ultimate challenge of using this skill to be successful in a game.
