Freeze tag (10 mins)

Focus- Physical Literacy

Activity Name: Freeze Tag

Introduction

Set up a 20m x 20m grid. Players travel around the

grid with a ball. Coach/parent tries to tag the

players. When a player is tagged he/she must stand

still with legs shoulder width apart and pick up ball.

Players are unfrozen when a teammate can dribble

a ball through their legs.

Variations

Easier (U4): Start with no balls, players hold hands

out to side - player freed by going under an arm –

progress to under legs

Harder (U6): Have players replace coach(es) as

taggers.

Harder (U6): Players must perform 2 juggles to

unfreeze

Focus – Ball Literacy

Name of Game: Topple me Coconuts

Organization

Split players into 2 teams and have them line-up

as shown below. Place balls on top of cones like

coconuts. Ask players to alternate making

passes/shots to try and knock the ball off of a

cone. If a player is successful they can go and

retrieve both balls and bring them back to their

side. Encourage celebrations!

Alternatives

Easier (U4): Start with rolling the ball across a

smaller distance. The target cones can be clustered to make it easier.
