Acitivities 1 & 2 (15 mins)

Set Up - Kids sit on line between cones. 10+ tall cones spread out on field with a disc cone on top to create image of trees w/ leaves.

Activity #1 - Leaves on the Ground - Kids receive quick chat about Fall season, getting colder, leaves changing color and falling on the ground. Coach shows kids trees / cones w/ leaves on the field and asks players to see if they can kick ONLY the leaves (disc cones) off the trees. Kids will have a go, coach will add disc cones back to trees as needed.

Progression:

Players will now be given a ball and will be asked to dribble to trees / leaves and then blast over the tree to spill the leaves on the ground. Coach will stand trees & leaves back up for ample opportunities.

Activity #2

After all the leaves are on the ground, coach will bring players back to sitting area. Then ask them to dribble their ball over to a leaf, stop the ball, pick up the leaf and then dribble their ball while carrying the leaf to the bag / goal to collect them. This is multi tasking and will take clear instruction / demonstration but can be achieved!

Coaching Points:

- Keep the ball close!

- Soccer position to stop ball if needed

- Don't forget your ball

- Dribble ball and carry the leaves to the goal
