Goal Master

This activity will have NAB AFL Auskickers practising goal kicking on-the-run!

x1 football per Auskicker pair

  

x1 set of goal posts

  

A stack of cones

   

HOW TO SET UP

Place some cones within the playing area, and set the goalposts a few metres outside it.

Half the players take a ball and each stands by a separate cone. This is the spot where they’ll be kicking for goal.

The other half of the group need to assemble behind the goals, ready to mark the balls.  

STEP 1

Players practice shots at goals by taking a few steps then kicking. The players behind the goals mark or retrieve the ball, then players swap over.

Keep this going for a few minutes.

STEP 2

Next, the players kicking for goal start from further back and take a longer run-up before kicking. 

And after that, players run and handball to another kicker, get it back, then kick for goal on the run.

VARIATION 1

Encourage Auskickers to use different types of balls.

VARIATION 2

Try having players bounce the ball as well as a handball before kicking at goal.

VARIATION 3

Have the Auskickers try kicking for goal with their opposite foot.
