Pattern Warmup

Simple Diamond Warm-up

This passing pattern is a warm-up pattern to get the kids understanding the difference in where they pass the ball and where they run to. In games we do not pass the ball then close in on the person we just passed to so we want to promote thinking about moving to space.

Passing Pattern from A -> C, C -> B, B -> D, D -> A

Player Rotation

Everyone always rotates to the Right (A -> B -> C -> D)

Or if you want to make it more difficult switch direction of player rotation in middle of activity
