The first player runs around the red cone and back down to the start of the slalom. There the player zig-zags up the slalom, then back down before running around the second red cone and down to the second group of players where the ball is passed to the next player
Important no more then a max of 3 players per slalom to make sure that there is lots of activity.
Carry the ball in two hands
Use side stepping motion through the slalom
Face forwards (in direction of travel)
Fast feet through the slalom
Runs can be timed and compared to last time
Poles can be used for the slalom instead of cones
Set up the cones as shown.
12 Cones with 2 balls.
Start with 2 players on the centre cone, each with a ball, and facing each other. On GO, the both run backwards to the first cone then side step up the grid to the second cone before running through the slalom cones back to the start where the ball is passed to the next players who only go when each player has received a ball.
Work in pairs
Coach calls out a number and that pair reacts and runs around the cones - one attacks and the other defends
Progressions: Swap sides
Set up the practice as shown above.
40m x 20m Grid.
Groups of 4
Player start in the bottom right corner and on the command sprint as a group before doing 5 press ups.
They then side step left to the next set of cones to do 5 sit ups before sprinting to do press ups. The group follow this routine until the end before the next group go.
"It is not only useful for staff who are experienced but a valuable tool for those subject staff who have to take teams."
The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
Give it a try - it's better in the app
