Really simple one this, but the kids love it, it’s small and fast



Mark a square of cones but miss out the corner cones, this gap will be used as goals (marked gold in pic)
Player A pass to B, B then has to attack a and score in the mini goal.
Then it would be C turn to pass to D and so on.
:lol::lol: Literally just added this one (or something like it) before i saw this

A nice end of training game:

Cones bowling.

- You make 2 or more teams. Each team has a ball and they have to take down a set of cones.
- You must draw a line to make sure there's a minimal distance to the cones.
- The keepers will be behind the cones to make sure the ball doesn't bounce too far away and to distribute the ball for the shooting as fast as they can.

Keeper

____________________
Players queue to shoot.

1. The keeper passes the ball with his hands to the player.
2. The player needs to control the ball and try to bring the cones down.
3. The keeper will try to catch the ball as fast as he can so his team can keep shooting the cones, since each team only has one ball available.

The first team to bring all the cones down wins.

I like it, that’s different and fun for them, not sure we have enough cones, we use the smaller marker cones. I’ll try and follow this though thanks.

I’ve also thought about a rounders/cricket kind of game where there’s a kicker/volleyer instead of a batsman but not sure how well this would work

Can always use balls on top of marker cones instead of taller cones as the skittles, only issue there is making sure they only have one actually in play

Second win this morning 8-0. Is there any greater satisfaction than watching your kids just play and play well without having to shout constantly from the sidelines
