Cars (15 mins)

30x30 aread. All players have a ball at their feet.

Give each child a moment to pick their favorite car.

Have them start their engine

As they drive their car, they are dribbling around in the given area.

Give different commands to have them do differnt activites on the ball. Ideas below.. You can ask the kids what cars do, then ask them how it can relate to soccer and do that. Any command works

- 'Green Light' ~ this means the kids dribble their socer balls around without bumping into others or going off the cliff edge.

- 'Red Light' ~ the kids stop dribbling and put one foot on top of the ball and remain still.

- 'Yellow Light' ~ the kids will assume this means go slower however it means go faster whilst still keeping control of the soccer ball.

- 'Honk you horn' ~ just for fun but the kids love it. Get the kids to sit on their ball and honk their imaginary car horn and make loads of noise!

- 'Red light Turn' ~ the kids know that red light means foot on top of ball. The turn comes when they roll the ball behind them and follow the rolling ball. This is coaching them to do the drag-back turn.

- 'wind-screen wipers' ~ the kids stop, put one foot on the ball and move the ball from left-to-right.

- 'Gas station' ~ tell the kids that we're running out of gas and need to find the gas station. Get the kids to dribble over to one corner of the area and on your comand the kids will do toe-taps on the ball which is pumping gas into the cars.

- 'Car wash' ~ all of the cars are filthy dirty and need a clean. Get the kids over to another corner of the area and get them to wash their cars by knocking the soccer ball with the inside of both feet from side-to-side.

- 'Police chase' ~ this ones great. The coach is the police-officer who tries to steal the kids soccer balls. The kids to evade you, will do the red-light turn to face away from you (change direction) showing them that it could work in a game.

Tunnel Tag (15 mins)

30x30 area. All kids have a soccer ball except 1, 2 or 3 players who will be it. Pick number of it players based on numbers of kids.

Kids will dribble around in the given area avoiding the players who are it. If they get tagged, the will pick up there ball and put it above their head, and spread their legs apart. To get untagged, the other plays have to dribble/pass through their leg.

Ask the kids what stays still, that is what you will become when you get tagged. Maybe a tree, statue...?
