Why Avoid Lines

IF YOU WERE A KID AND PLAYER # 8 WHICH GAME WOULD YOU WANT TO PLAY?

GAME #1
The Game- 10 players with soccer balls try to dribble through as many gates as possible in 5 minutes. If two players balls touch, those players have to do five push ups and then continue dribbling.

This game Player #8 dribbles soccer ball for all of the 5 minute activity.

GAME #2

The Game- 10 players each take turns dribbling though the cones. The coach uses stop watch to keep track of times.


This game Player #8 dribbles soccer ball for about 30 seconds.

Both games use the same amount of cones and set up time. A lot of soccer balls and a little planning makes the difference.
