Simple Square Warm-up

Saw a coach-friend of mine doing this the other night before practice on the sideline before his field opened up, and seemed a good way to get some touches in before practice / as a warm-up.

  • cone square, maybe 10 or 15 yards
  • dribble to the first cone, and cut around it, without knocking the cone over / touching the cone
  • next player starts when the one in front hits the first cone
  • proceed around the square
  • progression: self-pass inside the cones but run around the outside of the cone; work on touch
  • progression:┬áspecify which foot and/or surface to use
  • progression: reverse direction, especially if foot restrictions keep them using one foot in earlier versions

I like that this is both simple and complex at the same time. Via the GWNT Twitter feed.

Uruguayan Game Warm-up

I noticed this simple warm-up that the Uruguayans were doing before their game against Columbia today. Looks like maybe a 10 yard grid with one player jogging slowly toward the other on the opposite line receiving balls back and forth one touch. Love the simplicity of the combo of warm-up with skill work.
