The player with the ball feeds it anti-clockwise to the second player's head for them to head to the third player in the triangle.
The third player now feeds the ball to the first player for them to head to the second player's hands.
Go anti-clock wise and then reverse direction.
See if your players can finish a complete set, with all players having thrown and headed the ball without dropping the ball.
Players line up in 3 queues, with the ball starting with player 1.
Player 1 makes a 1-2 pass with player 2 before passing the ball down the line for player 3 to run onto.
Player 3 times their run to meet the pass and gets the ball under control before swinging a cross into the box for the players 1 and 2 to run onto and head into the goal.
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.
One feeder throws the ball up for the other player to try and head, back between the feeder's legs.
The feeder needs to stand with their feet apart and react quickly to the return header.
The heading player should keep their feet moving, being ready at all times to head the ball back with power.
One player throws the ball to the other player's head.
The throw should be slightly in front of the heading player so that they need to meet the ball in the air.
The returning header should also be slightly long, meaning the catching player needs to back track slightly in order to catch the ball.
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.
