HOW TO SET UP

Spread the players out in an area with everyone holding their football ready for when you call out a football “magic trick!”

LET'S PLAY

The coach calls out different “magic tricks” for the Auskickers to follow. For example:

  • Figure eight - move the ball in between and around the outside of each leg, like a number 8. 
  • Wrap the ball around your body - move it around you in a circle shape.
  • Throw the ball up - clap before catching it or catch it behind your back.
  • Pass the ball - side-to-side with a partner or through the legs.
  • Hopping or Robot walks!

VARIATION 1

Use your imagination for different magic tricks! Fun changes can include dodging opponents while holding the football.

VARIATION 2

Pretending to do an awesomely spectacular catch of the football (known as “taking a speccy”).

There are many “magic tricks” you can come up with when it comes to just having fun with the footy.

Keep the Auskickers guessing what’s next. This will quickly become a favourite game!
