Tornadoes and Volcanoes (5 mins)

Seperate your players into two teams, the Tornadoes and the Volcanoes.

Playing one minute rounds the players have to flip the cones over to represent their team names, Volcanoes so the cones look like volcanoes and tornadoes so they look like tornadoes.

After a minute the players will stop and the coach will count the cones and award a point to the team with the most cones representing their team. Play a few rounds this way and then play a few rounds with balls. When you play with balls the players have to stop their soccer ball next to the cone before they turn it over.

Makes sure you have a few more cones than players. At the end of the game the final round can be who can collect the most tornadoes and volcanoes and your area is tidy to set up your next activity.
