Possession Game with Kick Out

53 0

Field size: 40 yards by 30 yards

Number of players: full team

Age range: 8-10

Description: Split into two teams, one team every player has a ball at their feet while the other team doesn’t have a ball and are the defenders. 

The defenders try to knock the balls out of the square and the other team tries to keep possession of all the balls for as long as possible.  If a player loses the ball he can then help his other teammates keep the ball. These players can work together to keep three, two or just one ball for as long as possible. 

So, in the end, there could be one ball left that the team is passing around and the other team can’t get.  Keep track of how long each team keeps possession of the ball. But first off, each individual player wants to keep their ball as long as possible.

The team with all the players who have a ball should first start out dribbling and shielding the ball and then move to passing the last remaining few balls between themselves for as long as possible.

This drill is similar to sharks and minnows but the players play as a team and try to keep the balls together. This is a fun variation of the game and better for younger age groups.

Equipment needed: Cones and practice vests.
