These activities demonstrate how stations can be used during Grassroots Practices

Play. Inspire. Unite. 

The Player Development department puts together practices for coaches to use with their players across the province. 

Each week focuses 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 Fundamentals level. 

The objective of this session is for players to be able to pass into space.

Players will begin working on physical literacy in pairs all while passing through gates. 

After this, they will go into a 2v2 small sided game with an end zone to encourage the topic of the session. 

From here, players will go in to a variation of the same game, playing 2v1 to a Target Player.

Players then finish off in a fluid 2v2 game that is as close to the rules and regulations as they play on game day to have the ultimate challenge of using this skill to be successful in a game.

Total practice time: 45 minutes
