Warmup

Dribbling Maze

Fun dribbling game that gives players freedom to dribble in different directions. The cones and other players makes everyone think about which way they will dribble and when to change direction.

Organization:

Every player with a ball. Set up cones randomly around the field.

How to Play:

It is a soccer maze! Explain the game in a fun way describing a maze.

Players dribble in any direction trying to avoid the cones and other players. Each time someone's ball or foot touches a cone, have them do something fun to rejoin the game (touch the sky, jumping jack, toe taps, ball on head).

Coaching Points:

Dribble with head up

Keep ball close to feet

Variations:

Dribbling game | Running game | Add sharks (defenders) | Races
