Danger Zone

Intercept the ball; move it as a team!

Bibs for half the Auskickers


A stack of cones


x1 football



Using the cones, divide the playing area into three equal zones.

Split the players into two equal teams and give one team bibs.

One player from each team stands on opposite edges of the playing area (these are the “scoring lines”). The remaining players from both teams spread out evenly across the three zones.  


End Ball begins with one player holding the ball in the centre zone.

Teams aim to pass the ball to each other and get it to their teammate on the scoring line. But, the ball must pass through each zone before reaching the scoring line, and players cannot run once they have the ball. 


Once the ball gets to the player on the scoring line, a point is scored and the ball is returned to the centre and given to the other team.

If a defender intercepts the ball, the defenders become the attackers and the game continues! 


Try limiting the ways of passing – try throwing, handballing or kicking only.


Allow players to move with the ball. You can even remove the zones so players can move and pass anywhere.


Use different types of balls.
