Activity 1 (10 mins)

Raid the Nest  

6 teams of pairs with 20 balls in centre

6 cones on the outside of the pitch and a central nest with all 20 balls

Players must run to the Nest, grab a ball and dribble it back to their nest

They may only take one ball at a time and may not steal from anyone else

They may not pass to their teammates

Once all the balls are gone from the Nest, teams must count the number of balls in their box. 

Highest score wins.

Change it up: players can steal balls from other teams' nests but not the nests NEXT to theirs - no tackling

Change it up: allow tackling anywhere outside the nests in the field of play

FOCUS:After each round, allow the teams to form a strategy and play the game again. 

Get some feedback from them after the strategy round about HOW / IF they were better etc.

Activity 2 (10 mins)

Move that ball!

3x3 cones of different colours

4 teams of 3 

Each player has 3 balls (9 per group)

Player 1 carries ball 1 to 1st cone, sprint back, collect ball 2 and carry to 2nd cone, sprint back, collect ball 3 and carry to 3rd cone 

Player 2 and 3 repeat

Player 1 then collects ball from cone 1, carries it back to their team, sprints to cone 2, collects ball, repeats

First team with all their balls back at their team base wins

Change it: Players have to dribble ball in and out of cones to the top cone, then push pass the ball back to the next player (accuracy etc)

Can also use the SWEEP if you can work on the basics of it with the players, this would be a great coaching opportunity
