Indy 500

Focus - Ball Literacy

Name of Game: Indy 500

Organization

Players start from “Pit row” with parents. Player

starts by exiting the pits and dribbling the ball in a

clockwise direction around the track following their

parent. If the ball exits the track they must make 3

toe taps on the ball to restart the engine. Parent and

player can switch roles with child following parents.

Encourage players to make “Vroom! Vroom!” car

sounds while driving!

Alternatives

Easier – run the track first with no balls.

Easier – players carry ball in hands and run around

track

Harder – Have players drive the truck on their own.

Harder – Switch directions and have drivers go

counter-clockwise.

Harder – Change direction before completing circuit

on coaches’ command

Focus – Small Sided Game

Name of Game: Numbers Games – 2 Goals

Organization

Set up a small grid, depending on number of players.

Separate players into 2 teams as shown below. Number

players 1,2,3,4,5 etc. Call out a number. That numbered

player on each team must race around the cones into

the field where a ball is placed. Players must attempt to

score on their opponent’s goal while defending their

own. Encourage celebrations after a goal!

Alternatives

Easier: have them just run it as a race with a ball in their

hand and have them throw the ball in goal

Easier (U4): Put two balls so each can score goals

Harder (U6) – Increase number of players to 2 or 3 to

encourage teamwork (grid size may need to increase to

accommodate this.)
