Magic Circle

All players, each with a football, start by jogging within a designated area. The coach calls out a number and a skill, for example 4 handballs. The players then complete 4 handballs to themselves, before returning to jogging around the designated space again. The coach can mix up the number and skill each time and provide players with tasks to achieve while jogging around. Please see the video for examples

Stuck in the Mud

The taggers attempt to tag all others players. When a player is tagged they must stand with the ball above their head and legs apart. To free a tagged person, a ball must be rolled or handballed through their legs and regathered. Rotate taggers every 1-2minutes.
