Description of Idea
This activity is a variation of the activity called 4 goal soccer. It should only be played after you have taught and had the kids practice soccer skills.
For this activity you will need a fairly large playing field in the shape of a square. Place four different goals at the four different sides of the square. Class is divided into 4 different teams with each team trying to defend their own goal. You can have more teams if you wish by making two fields. It is up to you. You can play this with one ball or you can add another ball if you wish depending on your classes skill level.
It is played like regular soccer however there are 4 goals. Each team begins the game with 3 pins behind their goal. If team 1 scores a goal on team 2 then team 1 takes a pin and places behind their goal. If a team runs out of pins than their goal is closed. That team can bring their goalie out and try to score a goal and get a pin back.
Feel free to switch teams and start again when you see fit. Go over strategies for moving the ball to open spaces and reminding students to move to open spaces.
