Communication Game (aim of the session is to get players to think about what information they give to teammates on a football pitch. Can they give clear instructions? Can players listen to a specific voice when there are several voices to be heard?)

 

4 x players on each team. 2 x players on each team (workers) are blindfolded and will be working inside the square. 2 x players on each team (communicators) remain outside of the square, without blindfolds.

 

1 x worker on each team will have a football and 1 x worker will be empty handed.

 

The communicators must guide the workers around the cone and into the central area via the gate. Once there, the communicators will talk them through passing the ball to their teammate and then return to the start position via the gate and cone.

 

Players then swap roles and repeat.

Progression (players now communicating whilst passing the ball)

 

Each team has a ball and must work the ball across the pitch, with each player in the middle receiving the ball. (listen to the communication being used - "turn left", "hold the ball" for example)

 

Can the players speed up the play? Does the quality drop? Can communication improve?

 

Rotate with outside player once you have passed the ball to them.

 

Remove one ball to make it competative.
