Divide the class up so there are five players on each team. Then scatter enough cones for soccer goals. Each team needs to have offensive players who will dribble and pass the soccer ball and try to score on all the other teams. They will also have a couple of players who will defend their goal and try to keep the other teams from scoring goals against them. You can decide if you want to allow teams to have goalies or not. If you let them have goalies, make sure to rotate positions so everyone has a chance to run around.
I imagine this game to be much like the game of steal the bacon. There are two teams, each with corresponding numbers. Three numbers are called out and those players become the active participants. There are six hockey sticks, a puck, and two goals. The object is for the three players on each team to dribble, pass, and score a goal. This activity is a game to reinforce skills already taught.
A fun way to practice basketball dribbling skills with young learners. This game is played like musical chairs. Spread out hula hoops, polyspots, or cones all around the gym. Then give each player a ball to practice dribbling. When the music plays, they practice their dribbling. When the music stops, they have to find a marker. Of course, there are fewer markers than there are dribblers, so some players will be eliminated. But make sure that those who have been eliminated are still practicing their dribbling skills. This game sounds like a lot of fun. Try it out!
