Red light/Green light

Focus: Physical/Ball Literacy

Activity Name: Red Light/Green Light

Introduction

Set up a 15m x 15m grid. Players line up opposite coach, as

shown below. Coach gives commands “Green Light” for go and

“Red Light” for stop. Players dribble towards coach during

“Green Light” and must stop ball and stand still during “Red

Light.” If a coach catches a player moving during “Red Light”

he/she must return to the start. First player to reach the

opposite side of the grid wins!

Variations

Easier (U4): Start with no balls or have parents help

players.

Harder (U6): Use red/green cones or pinnis instead

of shouting commands.
