Tigers in the Jungle (10 mins)


Each child chooses to be a type of animal that lives in the jungle and

makes the sound of that animal. Only tigers are not allowed. The tiger is the most

feared animal in the jungle and is going to attempt to kick the other animals’

soccer balls into the surrounding alligator-infested swamp. If the tiger kicks the

ball into the swamp, the child can dodge the alligators and bring the ball back into

the jungle again. The child then stands with legs apart and the ball in the air

making the animal’s noise. When another animal/child dribbles the ball through

this child’s legs, they are free to continue the game. Beware of the Tiger!


Mark out a 20m x 20m area using the cones. Ask the animals to

dribble around the jungle without dribbling into each other or the swamp (the area

outside the grid). The tiger (coach) will prowl around the grid

and will enter the jungle and attempt to kick as many

balls as possible into the swamp. All players may re-enter the grid once they have retrieved

their ball from the swamp.
