The Futures Series

Session Activities

“Treasure Chest” (warm-up)— players dribble to a wagon filled with “treasure” … soccer related gear — different colors, sizes, some with numbers on them. Players grab a “treasure” from the “chest” and bring back to the coach. Coach asks questions about colors, numbers, type of soccer gear, etc.
“Obstacle Course” — players dribble around obstacles, crawl over and under objects, walk across balance beams, run through an agility ladder, score on goal, dribble through cones, pass the soccer ball between chairs and under tables, and finally run across the finish line!
“Big Bear” — players are shown two “bases” that if they are touching they are considered “safe”. The players challenge is to dribble from one of the “bases” to the other “bases” … the twist is that there is a “Big Bear” (the coach) that loves to eat soccer balls and will chase the players in hopes of enjoying a good soccer ball meal!
“Story Time” (cool down)— the coach reads an age appropriate soccer book to the players. Sometimes players receive special prizes … stickers, bracelets, freeze pops!

Moving Forward … The Futures Series Project!

Hoping to host “Friendlies” (scrimmages) … 2v2 Game Play
Hoping to add a Sponsor/Partner for The Futures Series who would be willing to cover the cost of a shirt and a size 1 soccer ball for all players in The Future Series
