Protect The Cone - Group

The Game

Same space as in previous activity. Divide the group into four teams. Each teams sets up three or four cones to protect on one side of the space. Each player must have a ball. Group leader can choose a group captain. Captain must organize the group; which players will defend and/or attack. On command, the game begins with players defending their cones or attacking the other team's cones, while controling their own soccer ball. When your cones are knocked down, your team can no longer attack. The team with the last standing cone is the winner.

Coaching Points

  • Allow players to organize themselves with as little interference from group leader as possible. This will be a valuable experience for when they are playing in an organized soccer game.
  • Watch which players have the most success at organizing their group. But make sure all get plenty of opportunities to be the leader.
  • Watch the group dynamics and switch players so all get to work together.
