- note how far got
1. Right foot only - tap on every 6 steps
2. Left foot only - tap on every 6 steps
3. Right foot only - tap on every 4 steps
4. Left foot only - tap on every 4 steps
5. Right foot only - tap on every 2 steps

Football exercises with Nicky - next time copy what was done on Saturday and get Nicky good at finishing with a strike at the end of a dribble
6. great game - 2 camps 2 balls each player has to get both balls into their camp
5. exercise - pass to 3 diff places - if hit it is a point - 10 in 5 minutes - penguin
4. for the passes of various lengths - 5 cones - I stand at each one and pass back unitl all 5 done
3. make it about 15 for passes between cones
2. 5 feet length apart - 10 dribbles in 5 minutes
1. clearing ball out of penalty area - kick ball up and then catch when I throw it back
like idea of fixed distance - hit once - you run after it and back again
- must not go too far - but hard enough - then you kick it back - how many in 5 / 10 minutes

Ideas
1. Practise striking against fence at Chertsey Rec - hitting hard with laces
2. Goal - Catching and kicking high
3. Defence - clearing the ball out of the area when alot of people around the ball - dont tackle own player
4. Dribble with a strike at end - set up cones in straight line with cone goal at end
5. Dribble with a strike at end - set up cones in curvy line with cone goal at end
6. Dribble with pass at end - cones either straight or curvy line - pass to me
7. Following instructions - dribble then pass where I say to pass as pass final dribble cone
8. Playing in position - hanging back to defend or going forward to support pass
9. Eye on the ball practise - head down, look at ball when striking - not looking where it goes
concentrating on getting the strike right
10. Throw ins and throws in general from goal
11. Sprint through cones without ball - now repeat with ball and try to be as fast
12. One touch dribble through cones - one touch each time you pass through - practise playing
to a certain area
13. Decide a route through various gates up the pitch towards goal - then execute - see how fast
and ensure they mix it up

Feet skills
1. Passes against fence - completely straight - can not move non passing foot, how many in a row can you do
2. Step overs with both feet - if start with left, step over to left then play to right with right
3. Stop Turn - Ball going back - left foot to stop, then left foot ahead of ball turning to right and
play in oppositedirection with right foot - then alternate feet
4. Taps between feet - like penguin walk
5. Keepy uppies
6. Simon Says
7. Clear instruction - pass right, pass left, go forward, come back, take a shot
When taking instruction do not look at me, just do it
8. Understand areas of the pitch - touchline, penalty area, centre circle and spot,
opposition goal, goal lines, halfway line
9. Compete with Nicky - set up longer route for you to dribble through and
see if he can keep up - every other session it's about you working out hard

General approach - use metronome and get him to do exercises to tempo so keeps him slow enough to do
properly and then have a measure for speeding up
In from TTD
exercise going round a player - Nicky at last minute goes to that side
reactions - shouting instructions at Nicky - get him to the react quickly - for example 'pass to the right'
set cones and see how far high ball lands and how good the direction is
accurate touch exercises in garden - which chairs can get ball onto or hit etc
hitting balls in the goal mouth - use as targets - also playing snooker
one tap dribbles
stop Nicky just running at player instead of ball
cone running warm up - do with Nicky
double dribble between cones Nicky idea - 2 balls
practise big kicks by kicking to Nicky then he dribbles back
jump onto right foot and kick with left when taking shots - Nicky
I do 10 before Nicky does 5 in dribbles between cones
play 3 minute song that nicky knows - at the end of it he knows what he needs to have scored by then
nice game with Nicky - when watching football - see who guesses where ball is passed to next and see who wins
carry big stick to hold with Nicky to help him learn abouit beating players - hold out to one side
do speed sprints with the ball - him without ball and then with ball between
2 points - make sure ball never too far - in fact have a number of touches you need to make -
such as 3 between two points a fair distance apart
