Skills

Set Up:

  • Set up a large 10m x 10 m square on a hard surface
  • Place as many soccer balls out as there are children
  • Coach controls the music

Note: Musical Soccer can be used for any skill focus by adjusting the activities you do when the music stops

  4. Swap balls with a partner
