Mirror your Partner

Players get into pairs and stand 1m away from the line. One player will move side to side in their grid, whilst their partner will try to stay in line with them.

Progression - the coach will shout go and the participant mirroring their partner will try to tig their partner, whilst they will try to turn and run to the line behind them without being caught.

1v1 Defend the Channel

Players get into pairs and stand at either end of a channel. The player with the ball will have five attempts to dribble past their opponent and score through the goal. After both players have had five attempts at scoring, the one with the most goals is the winner.

This can be adapted by changing the size of the channel or making the goals bigger/smaller.

Activity 2 (10 mins)

Get to the Goal

Players pair up and have one ball between them. The player with the ball will score points by dribbling through one of the goals. The defender has to win the ball back so then can then score points.

Players should pair up with someone who is a similar ability to them so it is fair.
