Is there a way to help my under 8's team to pass and mark in a fun amp; enjoyable way?

Just put 4 v 4 in square and they get 1 goal for 5 passes. coaches can take part by being in ball holding team. During game give team targets i.e. 5 passes insead of scoring a goal.

Play a simple game of tag with one, two or three balls; depending on the number of players you have. A small team is 'it' and a larger team isn't. The bigger team have to try and not get tagged by passing the ball around to players in danger of being tagged. In possession of the ball you cannot get tagged. Play this game with size 1 balls to make it even more difficult and dynamic.

Reverse tag


Description:

Players play tag. Blue players must tag the red ones. As soon as a red player is tagged, he joiins the blue team.

Players in possession cannot get tagged.

The game stops when only one red remains.


Coaching Points:

Players MUST pass the ball and you have to encourage them to pass (children might want to keep the ball themselves but this is a team game).

You can make the drill more complicated (or easy) by adding one or more balls.
