Name of Activity:
Purpose of Activity:To have kids practice dribbling, passing, and some goalkeeping skills.
Activity cues:Inside of the foot pass Cues
Prerequisites:Introduction to the skills of foot dribbling, kicking for accuracy and goal keeping.
Suggested Grade Level:3-5
Materials Needed:8 cones, balls for all but 8 students
Description of Idea
Cones are spaced along the perimeter of playing area. The cones are the ghosts. Each cone has a ghost keeper (goalie). Students foot dribble the ball randomly throughout the playing area and try to hit the cone with the ball. The ball should be kicked low and with the inside/outside of the foot (more of a pass) so as to hit the cone. Dribblers should be encouraged to fake the ghost keeper as a way to gain the advantage. After one shot at the cone, the dribbler moves on to another cone. Ghost keepers try to keep the cone from being hit by keeping their body between the ball and the cone. If the cone is hit the keeper and dribbler switch places.
Assess the quality of the kicks at the cones. Are students kicking wildly or making a conscious effort to knock the cones down? Assess the goal keeping by how well the ghost keepers keep their body between the ball and the cone.
If two balls hit a cone simultaneously, the kickers decide who switches by doing rock-paper-scissors.
Do not let children kick the ball real hard as if taking a real shot in soccer.
