It’s time to expand some of the skills we learned earlier this week! Now that you’ve had some soccer keep-up practice, try expanding that to dribbling around some obstacles. Set up some household items and practice dribbling the soccer ball around them.
You’ll need the following:
A soccer ball or equivalent (you could substitute a basketball, or a smaller ball for younger kids)
Some outdoor space (or a room inside you don’t mind kicking a ball around in)
A few objects to use as obstacles: chairs, tables, traffic cones, older siblings, etc. Make sure you ask an adult for help setting it up and making sure you’ve picked the right obstacles
- The goal is to guide the ball through the obstacles without using your hands – feet and legs only!
- Kick the ball through and around the objects you’ve set up until you reach the end of the course
