Coloured Gates

This game can be used to focus on running with the ball 1 v1 and accurate passing.

Set out several coloured gates.

  1. Ask players to try to dribble through as many gates as possible within a given time frame.
  2. Call out a particular colour they must dribble through.
  3. Hold up a cone of the colour you want them to run through. Don’t call out the colour so they have to look up.
  4. Introduce a defender

To focus on passing, pair up the players and go through each stage again.

Remind players to pass and move! or ask them to do 3 passes in each gate.

To focus on First touch remind players to touch the ball in the direction of the next gate (give them 2 colours). Receive on back foot.
