Players throw the ball up for themselves and head the ball lightly into the air once and catch the ball again.
Players can alter the height of their self-throw depending on their ability.
Try and head the ball twice before again catching and restarting.
One ball per player.
Players must place the ball above their brow on their foreheads and try to balance it there for as long as possible.
1 ball between two players.
One player feeds the ball using a looping throw to their partner's head.
The receiving player heads the ball back into the other player's hands who then catches the ball.
1 ball between two players.
One player feeds the ball, throwing a looping throw for them to head.
The other player catches the ball just in front of their forehead as they are about to head the ball, bending their knees slightly as they do before throwing the ball back.
Players 1, 3 and 5 are feeding the ball towards the 6 yard box. Players 2, 4 and 6 take turns to either head or volley towards goal. Once players have either fed, or shot they swap to the other side.
Set up a triangle as shown. 3 players on the outside have a ball each and the player in the middle without a ball. Player in the middle receives a serve from one player on the outside and heads it up in the air, and then heads it up back to them. He/she then leaves the vicinity of the triangle before coming back and and receiving from another player.

Groups of 4 players are paired and stationed on the sides of the area as shown in the diagram. Each team takes on the identity of a World Cup Team. The object of the game is to head the ball past the opposing team and over the opposing goal line. The player in possession serves the ball to his teammate to head towards the opposing goal line. The defending team must attempt to stop the ball from crossing their end line without using their hands. Once the ball has been stopped, the receiving player picks the ball up and serves the ball to his partner to repeat in the opposite direction. If a team heads a ball straight back and scores, the team gets 2 points.
