Saving Christmas and Beat the Grinch

How to set it up:

Create a playing area measuring 50x30 yards, with a seven-yard square in each corner.

Place a goal in the centre of each 30-yard touchline.

You will also need to create a box just off the pitch on each of the longer touchlines. Place a good quantity of balls in here.

There are two teams, each comprising one release player (Father Christmas), four goalscorers (reindeer) and one goalkeeper (the so-called Grinch).

The Grinch’s job is to prevent the other team getting the presents (footballs) onto the sleigh (represented by scoring a goal).

Two reindeer – one per team – are placed in each of the four corner squares.

The two Father Christmas– one per team – begin in the centre with a ball at their feet.

The winning team is the one that gets all of their presents onto the sleigh first.

Getting started:

On your whistle, each Father Christmas dribbles the ball to a corner square. To release his reindeer, he must play a quick one-two with his team mate, keeping the ball under control.

Once released, the reindeer runs to the square containing the balls, retrieves one and tries to score past the Grinch in the goal.

If the shot is successful, the reindeer waits on the side of the pitch for his team mates to join him.

Father Christmas can get as many reindeer in play as he likes at the same time, but if the shot is missed or saved, the reindeer must return to his corner square and wait for Father Christmas to release him again by playing another one-two.

When all reindeer have put their presents on the sleigh, Father Christmas must score the final goal to win the game and save Christmas!

Progression, is to take out Goalkeepers and make an additional box for reindeer, play a one two to release reindeer and then dribble to the centre box and score without a bounce, or flick up and volley. You can adapt this to match ability levels.
