Instructions:

Do warm up without ball first.

Intro ball. Players are all dribbling throughout the space.

At coach command players must dribble to the side of the field indicated by that number of cones.

First one to the side, gets a point.

Progression: Ask the players to go to the side opposite the number you call instead.

Progression: Call the numbers more quickly to encourage turns.

Regression: Start without a ball.

Competitive: Can you get quicker whilst keeping the ball close?

Can you stop your ball exactly on the line, under control and balanced?

Skill Practice 2

Crocadile


Survivors have to make it across the swamp without the crocodiles touching their ball.

If the crocodiles touch your ball you will then become a crocodile.

Continue going until you have one survivor left.

Organisation

'Swamp' 20x15

2/3 crocodiles to start depending on numbers

Survivors all start with a ball each on one side of the swap.

Crocodiles have to be on the floor looking like a crocodile.

Progression - Crocodiles allowed on their feet

Challenge - who can survive to the end 

Coaching points - keep ball close so crocs can't get it and head up so you can see where the crocodiles are
