THE SKILLS AND THE GAME

 

GAME

  1. Put a bunch of balls into a small area.
  2. Blindfold kid. A jumper/rugby shirt is ideal.
  3. Stand behind kid.
  4. Shout out where you want to catch the ball, for example, short left, long right.
  5. Kid leans into area to pick up a ball. If it’s a rugby ball, they pass it. If it is another ball, then they lose a life.

OPTIONS

  • Specify different types of pass, like off-the-ground, standing up.
  • Do a press up before each pass.
  • Count down to put pressure on the passer.
