- Defensive communication
“An attacker tries to get the ball onto a cone before they are touched by a defender. Defenders can only run around the perimeter of the shape.”
Up to six cones and a ball.
HOW TO PLAY
Put a ball carrier in the middle of a shape of five cones, about 3m apart (adjust to suit the players as the game progresses).
Put three defenders on the perimeter of the cones. They are not allowed inside the cones.
The ball carrier aims to put a ball down on a cone without being touched. They have 30 seconds to do this as many times as they can. The defenders move to stop this.
Shout out each score and keep the game active for that 30 seconds. Rotate players and repeat.
Add more cones or put them slightly further apart.
Put down three cones in a triangle (5m apart). Have two attackers and two defenders. The attackers aim to pass to put down the ball on a cone. They are not allowed to run with the ball.
Works well with any number, just add in cones to suit. After a couple of goes, ask the players to adjust the size of the box.
