Organization

- 20 x 20 Square

- All Players inside the square with a ball each

- 8 Pinnies needed per group

Activity

- Each player begins with a ball and dribbles throughout the area for 2 minutes performing skils and touches of their choice provided the ball stays on the ground.

- Ask the group to get into pairs with one player receiving a pinnie to hold and the other having a ball at their feet. On teh coaches call the player with the ball will try to stay away from the player with the pinnie whose aim is to tag the player with the ball.

- If the pinnie player catches the player with the ball they will drop their pinnie on the floor and take the ball, the player now without the ball will pick up the pinnie and rolls will be reversed.

- Play for 1 minute at a time with the person at the end of the minute having to do 10 jumping jacks

- Play 3 - 5 times

- Players switch partners

- Both of the players have the ball and the player with the pinnie must now attempt to hit their partners ball with theirs before switching the pinnie. The ball cannot not be hit from more than 5 yards away.

Phase 2

- Players remain in pairs, one player has a pinnie tucked in the side of their shorts and a ball, the other player has no ball or pinnie

- The player with the ball must dribble with the same side foot that they have the pinnie tucked in to, the defender will attempt to steal the pinnie.

- If the pinnie is stolen the players will then switch roles

- The player without the pinnie at the end of the time will complete 10 Jumping Jacks
