Support the players with technique and mechanics throughout.

Progress to Batman and the Joker

Half the Players are batman and half are the joker.

Batman have to dribble the ball around and stand the cones up so the batman light can shine in the sky.

Jokers have to turn the lights down towards the ground

The ball has to be at their feet at all times.

Set the timer for a minute at a time and see who wins each time.

Put into pairs and they have to work together to kick the cones down.
