Stuck in The Mud (10 mins)

Split your field in half and have the game played on one half.

Players Start without soccer balls. For the first round have the coach play the mud monster. If the players get tagged by the mud monster they are "Stuck in the mud" If they are stuck in the mud they must stand still with their legs open. To become unstuck another players must crawl thru the stuck players legs. The players should be encouraged to shout for help when stuck in the mud. After a few games have every player except the freeze monster get a ball.

The mud monster then has to tag or touch the soccer balls of the other players. If the mud monster touches your soccer ball you have to hold your soccer ball above your head and shout for help. To get unstuck one of the other players must put their ball thru your legs.

If game is too easy you can add another mud monster.

Battleships (10 mins)

Set up a line of cones, four or five yards apart from each other. You need half the number of cones as players (If you have 10 players you need five cones).Put your players in pair and set up a ball on a cone for each pair.

The players starts off about 4 or 5 yards away from the ball on the cone (battleship). Have them take turns trying to pass the ball into the battleship and knock the ball off the cone, if they hit the battleship they have to quickly reset the ball on the cone.

Make it into a competition, layers work together in their pairs and see which pair can hit the battleship the most in two minutes.

If it is too easy make them take a step back every time they hit the battleship

Make sure your players are using correct technique, plant foot next to ball and striking the middle of the ball with the inside of the foot. Take your time with this game, making sure every players technique is correct before moving on.

Can the players do this with both feet?

Hungry Dinosaur (10 mins)

Create two line for the players to start and end at either side of the field.

Have players start out without balls. When the coach yells go all the humans (red) have to make it across the field without the Hungry Dinosaurs' (Blue) tagging them. To start off with all the dinosaurs have to do is tag the humans. Play a few rounds so that all players understand the game and then ask all humans to get as soccer ball (as pictured). Now our humans have to get their soccer balls across without the dinosaurs touching the balls with their feet. If a human's soccer ball is touch they become a dinosaur. Have the coach start off as the first dinosaur and the last remaining human become the first dinosaur in the next game.

If Hunters are not near then can the dinosaurs take bigger touches in order to go faster? If hunters are near can the dinosaurs take smaller touches to get away from hunters?

Pirate's Treasure (10 mins)

Place all the balls (treasure) in the Treasure Island in center of the field. Split your players into teams of three or four and create a "pirate ship" (base) for each of the teams. These bases should all be the same distance from the Soccer balls.

When the coach starts the game one player from each team must run to the middle and use their feet to dribble one piece of treasure back to their pirate ship. When they return their ship they must 'high five' the next team mate so that he can go and get another piece of treasure.

When all the treasure has gone which ever ship has the most treasure is the winner.

You can then tell the players that the treasure is cursed and must be returned to the island using the same one player from each team method as before.

To progress this game when all the treasure from the middle has been collected players can go to other pirate ships and collect the treasure.

Players can not block/ or stop other players from taking the treasure. Have a countdown to end this version of this game. You may want to ask a parent to supervise each pirate ship to ensure that no blocking takes place.

Have the coaches and the subs in the middle of the two fields. When the ball goes out of bounds the coach yells "New Ball" and plays another ball onto the field
