Juggling / Pop challenge

Instructions:

1. Allow players to practice juggling.

2. Coach demonstrates which surface he/she would like the players to use (laces) and allows players to practice by bouncing the ball on the ground first and trying to pop the ball back up to his/her hands.

3. If this becomes to easy for the players then ask them to pop the ball before it touches the ground.

Progression:

(P1) - Pop Challenge: Players must pop the ball back up to their hands using their laces, and have to control the ball so that it doesn't go higher than their heads.

1. For the challenge the players must pop the ball up to their hands with his/her right foot, then catch it, afterwards pop the ball with their left foot and catch it (level 1).

2. After completing level 1, players must then pop the ball twice on each leg, catching it, and then finish by alternating the legs, so that the ball pops on the right and then the left.

3. If the ball is dropped, player starts back at level zero.

4. Players try to beat their latest level, or his/her peer's level.

Example: (Level 1) Right foot - pop - catch, Left foot - pop - catch; (Level 2) Right foot - 2x pop - catch, Left foot - 2x pop - catch, Right + Left foot - 1 pop in between each - catch; etc.

Capture the flag (scream jar)

Organization:

25 x 15

Each player with a pinnie (pinnie tail)

* Pinnies = scream jars *

Instructions:

1. Each player has a pinnie tail tucked into his/her shorts.

2. The objective of the game is to collect as many pinnies as you can from the other players, without having your pinnie taken.

3. If a player's pinnie is stolen, he/she may continue to play and accumulate as many pinnies as possible.

4. Each pinnie a player steals equals one point. If you end up keeping your pinnie at the end of the game that equals two.

Coaching Points:

1. Vision - Keep your head up. (1) Be aware of space and pressure (2) Check your shoulder to see if there's space behind.

2. Change in speed and direction

3. Body shape - Keep a low center of gravity to (1) shield the other players from stealing your pinnie (2) quick explosions away from pressure

4. Body positioning - where is the pinnie (/ball) in relation to pressure

Monsters vs. Coach

Organization:

25 x 15

Each player with a ball

(2x) 5 x 5 grids opposite from one another

Small cones dispersed between 5x5 grid

Instructions:

1. Mike and Sully (players) are trying to get as many scares in as they can so they can become employees of the month. But in order to do so they must fill their containers (balls) with screams.

2. Mike and Sully must go from room to room scaring the coaches, who are fast asleep. But from the closet door to the bed they have to watch out for the dirty laundry that's been thrown around on the floor.

3. If they touch an item of clothing (cones) they must all go back to Monsters Inc. and go through "contamination". In order to make sure they're not affected by the child's (coach's) germs, the players must do 5 toe taps before returning.

4. Once the players (monsters) make it to the side of the bed on the count of three all of them must roar and make their meanest monster face to scare the coach awake.

5. Play for a few rounds.

Coaching Points:

1. Dribbling Technique - Messi vs. Ronaldo; When and where should we be taking those touches.

2. Vision - Keep your head up. Be aware of space and obstacles.

Watch out for Randall!

Organization:

25 x 15

Each player with a ball

Pinnies for the coaches

Instructions:

1.  Mike and Sully (Players) must bring Boo (ball) back to her bedroom where she is safe from Randall.

2. The only way they can get past Randall, is by quietly sneaking around the Randall (coach), when he's not looking.

3. If caught, he/she then loses the their ball and becomes a Randall "helper"

4. Players can quietly creep behind the Randall and his helpers when they  aren't looking. But if the Randall quickly turns around the players must place the sole of their foot on top of the ball, to protect Boo. If they don't the Randall might steal her.

5. Play until all Mike and Sully(s) have become Randall helpers.

6. Each ball that makes it over to Boo's bedroom equals a point.

Coaching Points:

1. Keep your head up

2. Take nice Ronaldo touches when you have space

3. Change in speed when Randall (coach) isn't looking

Progressions:

P1 - Add in pinnies as keys, attached to the back pocket of the coach, if a player steals a key when the coach isn't looking everyone gets to safely travel across to the other side and back without being caught. Keys = magic doorways.
