Fundamental movement warm up (15 mins)

Safe zone tag

area set up as shown with 4 squares marked in each corner, which will act as safe zones.

Players are chosen to be the 'taggers' and they try to tag as many players as possible.

If the players are tagged they must perform a series of tasks chosen by the coach until they are released by one of their team mates by tagging them. These tasks will be things like hopping, star jumps etc which focus around the abc's of movement. Can also have footballs around the outsides and players once tagged have to go and perform things like kick-ups or heading before they can re-enter.

Players cannot be tagged in any of the 4 zones but players can only stay in these zones for a maximum of 5 seconds.
