Steps in a row and make sure the children always have the ball up during the exercises:

  • 1 foot on and in between
  • 2 feet on and in between (start with left and right foot)
  • 2 feet on and 3 in between
  • Sideways 2 feet on and in between
  • sideways in the difference (jumping)
  • sideways in the difference with turn

Then move the steps so they are in two long rows next to each other.

  • Again 2 feet on and off and in the difference.
  • Then move the steps around so you can sort of slide through them.
  • Make a jump throw, land on 2 feet (zero axis) and move to the next step.
  • warm up with ball on one half
  • Ball must be tipped / everyone does an exercise.
  • e.g. turn straight arm and tip with the left side / turn left arm and tip with the right side / same for example with heel ......

  • are there 20 counts reached both teams sprint to the middle line
  • after 3x retrieve there is a winner / winner may determine what loser does
  • make several teams of 5, 4 or 3 players / depending on the number of players in the training
  • 2 teams start to play against each other
  • who scores continues playing, who does not score leaves the field and a new team comes on the field
