Gates

It's all about handballing and spatial awareness with Gates!

A stack of coloured cones

  

x1 football per Auskicker pair

  

HOW TO SET UP

Create ‘gates’ in the playing area by using two cones of the same colour placed a metre apart.

There should be at least one gate for every Auskick pair. Each pair starts at a different gate. 

LET'S PLAY

When you say “go”, each pair handballs to each other three times, through their gate, then run to a vacant gate and perform three more handballs.

LET'S PLAY

Then repeat! 

Be sure to check out the variations to Gates on the "Change it Up!" page.

VARIATION 1

After a pair handballs three times, try having the player without the ball run to another gate and find a new partner. The player with the ball stays at the gate.

Swap this rule after a while so that the player with the ball leaves their partner and finds another gate.

VARIATION 2

Players with the ball must bounce while running to a new gate.

VARIATION 3

If you have enough different coloured cones, have a race to see which Auskickers can visit every different coloured gate.
