Coordination - Exercise:
Looking for a really exciting exercise for kids to teach ball coordination? The soccer balls are constantly passed between the kids in the group like fireballs.
Ball coordination, team play
A fireball has fallen to the Earth from a distant star. It doesn’t look like it, but if you touch the ball, you’ll notice that it’s very hot indeed. Nobody wants to hold the fireball, and so everyone should pass it on to the next child as quickly as possible.
Divide the children into groups of three. Mark out the playing field. Each group of three kids gets one ball.
The groups move freely around the playing field. Each team has a ball, and the children in the group all have a number from one to three. At the start of the exercise, the child numbered 1 holds the ball in his or her hands. The trainer gives the command, and calls a number. The ball is rolled to the kid whose number was called.
