20x20 yard area, (The Zoo), set up as shown

All players have a ball each

Get them to use their 'Magic Bubblegum' to keep the ball close!

Instructions:

All players are animals and need to stay inside the Zoo.

Use different animals to vary speed:

Cheetah; Monkey and Elephant.

Add Giraffe and get them to stretch as high as they can after stopping the ball, and Mouse to get them to scrunch down as small as possible after stopping their ball.

Coaching Points:

Keep the ball close to you

Take lots of little touches with both feet using all surfaces.

Progressions:

On coach’s command:

"HEADS" – Players stop the ball and put their head on top of the ball.

"TAILS" - Players stop and sit on the ball.

To increase the difficulty and fun play opposites e.g. heads = tails, belly = back etc.
