1 V 1 Duels
The players are divided into two teams, and positioned at either side of the coach outside a 15x20 yard grid with two small goals (or set of cones) on each end line. The coach serves a ball into the grid and the players try to gain possession and score on their opponent, in either of the 2 goals.
Play for about 20 seconds, until a goal is scored or the ball is out of bounds.
- A goal in the closest goal = 1pt. Ball passed into the goal = 5pts. Dribble to the opposition’s goal or through the cone goal is 10pts.
- Players can only score in the opponent's goal.
- Coach can make it a 2v1 game with bonus points for goals scored after a turn or a move past an opponent.
Coaching points: winning possession, attacking the goal, beating an opponent off the dribble
