This is ‘Soccer Ball Tag’. Use this game after completing the dribbling and passing skills in a soccer unit. You will need soccer balls (or soft foam balls if you want to be more safe). Students will start spread out in the playing area. Choose 2 players who will be ‘it’. They will get a ball to start. You will also need a bag of balls on the side waiting to be used. The players who are ‘it’ must try to kick the ball at the students who don’t have a ball. They must tag them by hitting them in the foot. If they miss, they can of course chase the ball and try again. If a player gets hit in the foot by a
ball, then the player who got hit will then become a tagger. They must then get a ball from the side and put it into play. So now there are more taggers. Continue until everyone is tagged.
That’s it for this idea!
