Create two safe areas designated on each side of the field (designated by the two red coned rectangles). Drop several cones between the safe areas (these are the 'MINES').


Variation ONE:

All players together start from one of the safe areas. They must dribble across to the other safe area as they try to avoid the 'mines'. If a player touches a 'mine' coach can yell 'BOOM!' and the player must put together their 'blown up ball' by doing 5 toe touches. They can then continue to dribble to their desired safe area. Do this a few times so they understand the game.

Variation TWO:

divide the group into TWO teams. Teams will start across from each other (each in their OWN safe zone). Two at a time, players will dribble across to the opposite safe zone. Team that gets both of their players across first, get a point for their team. (Same rules apply as above if the player 'hits' a MINE). Team that gets to 10 points first, wins the game.


Keep the ball CLOSE to stay in control of it.

Use multiple foot surfaces to 'steer' your ball. (Inside, outside, bottom, etc).
