Acitivities 1 & 2 (15 mins)

Set Up - Kids sit on line between cones. 10+ tall cones spread out on field on their side. 2 to 3 Pugg Goals at far end.

Activity #1 - Feed the Animals - Kids are welcomed to "Soccer Jungle" and are asked to help coaches feed the animal mouths (goals) at the far corners by dribbling through jungle trees. Kids will follow Coach demo and avoid hitting tree cones to score. Recycle balls as needed for players to go at least 3x.

Activity #2 - Coach quickly moves cones in a line to create tight spaces that the players can dribble through. Players can perform soccer position (foot on top of ball) when close to cones to make sure they do not hit the cones. Little kicks through the tight space and then FAST to feed the animals / score on goals. If scoring on one goal at the end, Coach can place second goal at opposite end to allow for players to go end to end, through cones to goals. **recycle balls as needed!

Coaching Points:

- Keep the ball close!

- Soccer position to stop ball if needed

- Use age appropriate language -> "little kicks" = dribbling "big kicks" = shooting

- Use big kick to score / feed the animal
