Name of Activity:
Purpose of Activity:To reinforce dribbling/trapping skills in soccer.
Prerequisites:Previous practice using the instep while dribbling; previous practice trapping the ball; knowledge about moving clockwise/counterclockwise
Suggested Grade Level:K-2
Materials Needed:Poly spots (as many as you can get); foam/soccer balls (1 per each student); 4 or more cones; upbeat music.
Description of Idea
Place cones in a large circle (resembling a racetrack) on the gym floor or outside surface, and scatter poly spots around the outside of the cones/circle. (No one is allowed on the inside of the cones/circle.)
On the cue of music, have the students dribble the soccer balls, moving clockwise, around the racetrack. (Start with a speed limit of walking.) When the music stops, each child traps her/his ball on a poly spot. Students continue dribbling to the cue of music.
Note: Periodically change directions so children practice moving in both clockwise and counterclockwise pathways.
Visual assessment allows you to make sure all students can trap the ball.
Adaptations for Students with Disabilities:
Use larger or deflated ball
Students who use wheelchairs (typical upper-body strength): hold the ball on lap and push wheelchair
Students with visual impairments: put bells or beeper in ball; use deflated ball
