Warm Up (15 mins)

Tag

15y by 15y area, 2 players are the taggers (wear pinnies), the rest of the players are trying not to get tagged, each player has one ball.

Once a blue tags a player, the player who is tagged has to do 5 toe taps to get back in the game. Swap around the taggers every 2 minutes.

Adaptations/Progressions:

1) Increase number of taggers

2) Take away the taggers balls

3) If player is tagged they become the tagger

4) Instead of toe taps, players have to do side to sides/another skill with the ball

Play for 15 minutes

Same area, players are in pairs, this time there is a pair that are going round covering the gates (reds).
