Knock it off

Start & organisation

  • Divide group into two teams and set up three balls on three cones at either end as shown
  • Teams play with one ball (as normal) which they use to try and knock all of their opponents balls by passing into them
  • First to do so wins the game

Timings: 10-20 minutes
Pitch area: 20m x 15m (small field)
Other rules: N/A


  • Make the area bigger or smaller

What to look for

  • Are players looking to pass the ball to hit the cones?
  • Are players running with the ball when they have space?

What the coach can do

  • Positively praise accurate passes
  • Encourage players to get on the ball to score a ‘goal’
