Sharks & Minnows

Skill: Dribbling 

Number Of Players Required: Full Kinder team 

Equipment: Four or more cones to mark grid, one ball for each player and some type of tail (piece of cloth) for each player. 

Grid Requirement: 20 X 20 yard grid 

Organization: Create a 20 X 20 yard grid marked with cones. All players are required to play within the grid and each player must have a soccer ball and a tail. The players are Minnows and the coach is the Shark. 

How The Game Is Played: The Minnows have a tail tucked in the back of their shorts. The Shark (coach) moves around the grid catching Minnows by pulling out their tails. The Minnows try to avoid the Shark. When a Minnow has lost its tail it must leave the grid. Conduct the activity without a ball first and then introduce a ball. 

Variations: Allow players to only use left foot, right foot, outside of right or left foot, or use inside of both feet.
