Number Of Players Required: Full U-6 team
Equipment: 4 cones to mark grid and 1 cone and 1 ball for each player
Grid Requirement: 20 X 20 yard grid
Organization: Create a 20 X 30 yard grid marked with cones. All players are
required to play within the grid and each player must have a soccer ball.
How The Game Is Played: The coach stands on one endline with his back to the
players who are spread along the opposite endline. Place 5 cones behind the coach,
when the coach has back to the players, the players must dribble toward the opposite
endline. Before the coach turns around he yells “1 2 3 Red Light” and then turns around.
At that point all players must have stopped the ball with the sole of their feet. Any one
seen moving is sent back to the endline. The coach turns his back again. Repeat. The
first player to pick up a cone wins.
Variations: Allow players to only use left foot, right foot, outside of R or L, or use inside
of both feet. Use the endline in place of cones (first player to the endline wins).
