Warm-up (15 mins)

Description: GKs are named days of the week and must pass following the sequence within red cones. 

Adaptations (Progressions & Regressions):

Regression: Players can stand still to receive and throw but have to be in SET to catch.

Progression: Players have to throw to next weekday or number; all players have to be in set to receive; players MUST move into space after each throw.

Challenges, Conditions or Targets: 

All players will be named a day of the week and passes must follow in sequence.

If a pass misses its target, the thrower must touch a coloured cone and return before their next turn. If a ball is dropped all players must run to a coloured cone.

The least number of cones touched is the winner.

Description: Multiple servers shooting from various distances and angles to test GK shot stopping. 

Adaptations (Progressions & Regressions):

Regression: GK chooses which server is shooting and gets into SET ready to receive. 

Progression 1: Servers shout SET to initiate play, GK adopts correct position for that server.

Progression 2: Server passes to shooters who turn and shoot in real time; GK has to change position and react. 

Challenges, Conditions or Targets:

GK must choose best starting position and react to changes in ball position.

Servers cannot run with ball, they must shoot after turning.

Goals scored = songs sung to each other later.
