Exercise from the ebook Teaching Soocer Italian Style – Available for iPad at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/teaching-soccer-italian-style/id903908631?mt=8
Activity in the form of competition involving notion of space, reaction time and accuracy in kicks. The activity is as follows:
The field is divided in two squares of 15×10; in each square a team is placed. Inside the space arrange a lot of balls (odd numbers, and more balls than players). After the signal, both teams start kicking the balls to the opponent´s field paying attention not to use excessive power because if the ball goes out of the field, the players can´t go outside to bring it back. After 2 minutes the coach stops the game. The team that has the most balls in their space loses the game. We can start using hands, then move on to using the feet.
