Treasure Island (15 mins)

Organization:

-20x20 grid

-Each player has their own ball.

Instructions:

-Players are sailing(dribbling with their soccer balls) all over the ocean trying to sail around as many islands as they can.

-Players get points for each island they sail around, players sail around islands by turning with the ball around the entire cone

-Eventually progress into placing a small prize(the treasure) under one or two cones (islands) for players to try and find

-For the end of the activity, now tell players to use their cannonballs to fire at the islands. As the players dribble towards an island, when they get close they can fire their cannonball at the cone and then bring it to the coach.

Coaching Points:

-Keep your ball(ship) close to you.

-Head up to see other ships and islands.

-Sail as fast as you can.

-After travelling around an island, accelerate to a new island.
