SET UP:

Smaller rectangle is marked out inside a larger one. Cones are scattered inside the smaller rectangle. 4 teams are organised and start on one of the 4 edges of the rectangle.

A) To begin, players move from their edge and in to the centre then touch a cone before moving out to a different edge. Players are free to choose which cone and which edge they use.

1) Forward movement

2) Any movement that isn't forward

3) One leg

4) Jumping

B) One team move in to the middle rectangle to become taggers. The other three teams try to move from their edge in to the smaller rectangle before touching a cone and then running to another edge. If tagged, the player must perform a 5 second balance before being able to move again.

KEY POINTS:

* Assessing space

* Clever movement - ability to change direction

* Ability to change speed

POTENTIAL PROGRESSIONS:

* Players must change their movement type after reaching the cone

* Players must change their movement speed after reaching the cone

* Introduce a points system - 1 point for each edge reached

* Introduce a risk vs reward - -2 points for each time tagged by a middle player

* Player swaps position with a tagger after being tagged

* Time challenge - how many points can you get?

KEY POINTS:

* Assessing space

* Clever movement - ability to change direction

* Ability to change speed

* Understanding when to take a big touch vs small touch

* Execution of skill

POTENTIAL PROGRESSIONS:

* Players complete a dribbling move at the cones (i.e. toe taps or sole roll) before moving out to the opposite edge.

* Use of different skill moves

* Use of different parts of the feet

* Change the number of cones in the centre rectangle

* Players could be asked to exchange balls with another player in the centre after completing their task

* Time challenge - players must dribble in, touch a cone and then dribble to another edge to score a point

* One ball per team - player completes his task and then gives the ball to his team-mate - reducing the physical output on the players

SET UP:

Smaller rectangle is marked out inside a larger one. Cones are scattered inside the smaller rectangle. 3 teams are organised and start on one of the 4 edges of the rectangle. The remaining team acts as defenders in the centre. They have a ball in their hands and will attempt to throw the ball on to an attacker's ball to 'tag' him. If tagged, the attacker must complete a quick ball manipulation skill (i.e. 5 inside touches) before he can play again. Attackers try to go through the central area and out to another edge without being tagged or touching any of the cones on the ground.

KEY POINTS:

* Assessing space

* Clever movement - ability to change direction

* Ability to change speed

* Understanding when to take a big touch vs small touch

* Execution of skill

POTENTIAL PROGRESSIONS:

* Introduce a points system - 1 point for each edge reached

* Introduce a risk vs reward - -2 points for each time tagged by a middle player

* Player swaps position with a defender after being tagged

* Time challenge - how many points can you get?

* Could add goals to the four edges and after a player has travelled through the smaller rectangle he can shoot on goal
