Training was disrupted because we had team photos occurring half way through the session. It was great that we had all players at training (14) and everyone remembered to bring their match day jumper. Jared still doesn’t have one of the new match day jumpers but he was able to borrow a jumper for the photo.
We started training with a competitive one on one drill where the players had to compete for the football and then have a shot at the goals. Alex and Matthew were pretty serious in their pair – I don’t think they even noticed the football. Jensen and Jeremy seemed pretty evenly matched. Caleb and Dylan just kept giving free kicks away.
Steve gave the kids a good exercise where we placed all of the footballs into the goal square then two players had to kick the footballs out of he goal square the rest of the team retrieved the footballs and returned them to the goal square. The objective was for the two players to clear the goal square of all footballs before the footballs could be retrieved and returned to the goal square.
