Nuts and squirrels (10 mins)

Focus - Ball Literacy

Name of Game: Nuts and Squirrels

Organization

Teams are divided into 4 groups - each group is given a

different colored pinni. All the balls positioned in middle

square. On coaches command 1 player from each group

collects a ball (nut) from the middle. Player dribbles ball

back to their triangle (tree) – next player can go when the

ball is stopped in the triangle. When the coach stops the

game, the team with the most balls (nuts) in their triangle

should be praised the loadest, but praise them all.

Alternatives

Easier – Instead of dribbling players use hands.

Harder – One player from each group is allowed to steal a

ball from the other team’s triangle.

Focus – Small sided Game

Name of Game – Chain Soccer

Organization

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

Separate players/parents into 2 teams as shown below.

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

numbered player/parent combo from each team enters into

the field to challenge for the ball. Players try to score on

opposing side while defending their own side. Parents and

players not called can act as goalies on their side.

Alternatives

Harder (U6) – No parents. Ask children to link arms and

work together to stop goals.

Harder (U6) – Increase the # of players called into the grid

to 2 or 3.
