Jogging and sprinting warm-up

This is a good way to warm young players up so they don’t strain their muscles when they reach match speed.

How to play it

  • Arrange your players into two teams.
  • One team performs some dynamic and static stretching exercises of their choice.
  • The players in the other team dribble in and out of the stretching players and complete various skills and nutmegs (passing the ball between their legs) on them.
  • On your whistle, the players switch roles.

The practice can be progressed to include:

  • The dribbling players making one-two passes with the stretching players.
  • The dribbling players pass to the stretching players and tell them to turn and dribble.
