Grassroots Practices You Can Use - Fundamentals (Week 57)

By Staff, 12/19/17, 3:00PM EST


This week's session is a Ball Mastery Session

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 ball mastery. 

Players begin by playing “Do you want to be a snowman?” This fast paced decision making game works on physical literacy as well as ball mastery in an environment that is familiar to the players. 

Players then play 2v2 in a street soccer environment before playing in a 1v1 competition. This all comes together in a 4v4 game with retreat line.
