Bulldozers & Builders

Bulldozers & Builders

Fun passing / kicking game

A great way to explain the game is Soccer Bob the Builder (the tv show)

Organization:

- Set up tall cones randomly on your field. Have your players help with the set up.

- Every "bulldozer" needs a ball. The "builders" do not need a ball.

How to Play:

- The objective for the "bulldozers" is to knock down as many cones as they can by kicking their ball against the cones. The "builders" job is to stand the cones back up.

- Select 2 or 3 Builders for each round. Make sure every player has the opportunity to be both a builder and a bulldozer.

Coaching Points:

- Keep ball under control at all times

- Use instep (shoe laces / top of foot) when striking / kicking ball
