What’s covered in Coaching Technique with Competitive Drills
Coaching Technique with Competitive Drills features a complete training session led by Canadian Men’s National U18 coach, Rob Gale. Split into four parts, each video features different stages and types of drills for running highly competitive training sessions:
The session begins with two players dribbling around a grid with the aim of catching and eliminating the player in front of them. This first drill challenges players to master quick touches, acceleration and ball control to be successful.
The drill is developed with direction changes, additional defenders and runs through the middle to score points. You can then see how well players react to pressure.
Players are now put into teams and asked to complete 20 quick passes. They then move grids with the aim of eliminating the team in front of them. The drill is progressed with ball juggling and extra rules that increase the challenge. Players are then put into mini possession games with stipulations progressively added.

Players are now put into direct competition racing between cones in a drill you might recognize as the ‘Shake and Bake’ body swerve. A ball is then added to see how well they can lose the other player with a ball at their feet.
The session ends with a small sided game. Three teams are used with the losers forced to wait it out on the sidelines. Progressions include goals only being allowed to be scored inside the area and with one touch. This final drill will reveal which players want the ball whatever the risk and which ones disappear out of fear.
