Grid: 10 x 20 or 30 (depending on age) with up to 4 balls, depending on age/ability of players.

3 grids: 10x30
Number of players: (up to 14)
Number of balls: start with 2 (add balls depending on age and ability of players).
Each team in a 10x10 grid with a grid in between them.
Punt ball into other teams area. Ball must aim to land inside area. If team defending kick drop the ball - other team get a point.
Number of players: 5 working with 1 ball.
Grid size: 20x20
Practice grubber kick and punt.
4 players on each corner of the grid kick the ball to each other. Player in the middle attempts to intercept the ball. If kick is intercepted kicker becomes the chaser.
One player starts with ball and runs to first cone, where he kicks the ball across to the other cone.
The other player must time his run to collect the ball.
He should be collecting the ball as near to full pace as he can.
Either a grubber or a chip kick can be used.
With a chip kick, the receiving player should try to catch the ball on the full.
One player from each team goes to the oppositions end and starts in the end zone.
The aim of the game is for each team to kick a grubber kick through to their team mate the other end of the grid in the end zone. When a ball gets through to a player in the end zone the player that kicks the ball goes to join them.
The winner is the first team to get all their players in the end zone.
