U7 Mini Tag: Run past defenders

“Use pretend moves and dodges to change direction”

Run past defenders

1. Divide your players into teams of four and put each team behind a line of cones.

2. Each player should hold a ball in two hands.

3. When you say “go”, the front players race to the other end of the lines making sure they swerve in and out of the cones as they go. They should use pretend moves and dodges to change direction.

4. Repeat for the next players in each team and so on.

5. Develop by making players stand by some of the cones so that the runners have to use pretend moves and dodges to avoid them. Rotate players so that they take turns on the cones.
