Activity: 2 Net Soccer Game
Split students up into two teams of 6-7 players per team. You will need to have 2 games running simultaneously.
-Step 1: Have the students form triangles as shown in diagram on their field. Have a conversation about why Triangles are an effective an strategic shape to use in a game with two nets? Would they be beneficial in a regular soccer game?
-Step 2: Have them play a game. When the ball goes out of play the game restarts with a kick in. The first pass is free and must go backwards. Demonstrate before the game begins. (HAVE SOCCER BALLS SCATTERED AROUND THE OUTSIDE OF BOTH FIELDS SO STUDENTS DON'T SPEND THE WHOLE CLASS CHASING THE BALL THAT WAS KICKED OUT OF PLAY)

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
