Red light/Green light (10 mins)

Focus: Physical/Ball Literacy

Activity Name: Red Light/Green Light

Introduction

Set up a 15m x 15m grid. Players line up opposite coach, as

shown below. Coach gives commands “Green Light” for go and

“Red Light” for stop. Players dribble towards coach during

“Green Light” and must stop ball and stand still during “Red

Light.” If a coach catches a player moving during “Red Light”

he/she must return to the start. First player to reach the

opposite side of the grid wins!

Variations

Easier (U4): Start with no balls or have parents help

players.

of shouting commands.

Shark Attack (10 mins)

Focus – Ball Literacy

Organization

Players (Fishes) start on one end of the grid with a ball

each. Coach/parents are the Shark without a ball.

Objective is for players to dribble from the coral reef into the

open ocean using different parts of the foot.

When coach shouts shark attack – parents and coach try

and steel the players ball. Player has to turn and get back to

the safety of the coral reef. When player loses their ball they

join their parents as sharks

Alternatives

Easier – Divide team into two and let a parent and

player play sharks.

teams have a turn at been a shark and dribbling fish.
