What time is it Mr. Wolf? (10 mins)

Organization:

Each player has a ball and stands on one side of the grid opposite the

coach/wolf. The coach/wolf has their back to the players. The players ask Mr. Wolf “What

time is it, Mr. Wolf?” If Mr. Wolf says “8 o’clock,” the players dribble 8 steps forward, 6

o’clock, 6 steps forward, etc. If Mr. Wolf says “Its dinner time,” the Wolf attempts to tag the

players before they can get back to the starting line. If a player gets tagged they become a

wolf.

Focus - Ball Literacy

Name of Game: Gates

Organization

The coach places cones throughout the training area in pairs. Make the gates different sizes.

Make sure that there are at least 3-4 more goals than the number of players participating.

The coach then challenges the players (for a set period of time 15-30 seconds) to get as

many goals as possible by moving through the cones in various ways e.g. running forward,

running backwards, ball stuffed up shirt, ball above the head, bouncing the ball, hopping,

skipping, dribbling.

Alternatives

Ask open ended questions as to how they could dribble through more gates. Ask them if they dribbled through more gates after following the advice given. Never ask them how many gates but strive to get more gates.

Try and dribble through consecutive gates, aline some gates.
