Kick in Threes

Practise kicking and marking skills in small groups!

Auskickers are in groups of three. Each group will need:

x1 football

   

x4 cones

  

HOW TO SET UP

For every group of three, place down three cones kicking distance apart to make a triangle.

Send an Auskicker to each cone, and give one the footy.  

Keep a fourth cone up your sleeve, as you’ll turn the triangle into a square later on. 

STEP 1

Players kick the ball to each other around the triangle. After a while, switch direction and keep practising.

STEP 2

Once the players get the hang of it, add the fourth cone to make a square.  

A player without the ball runs to the vacant cone to receive the kick.

Then another player runs to the new vacant cone to receive the next kick. 

VARIATION 1

Try having players practise ‘pushing back off the mark’ after they’ve caught the ball. That means stepping back a few metres from where they marked the ball before taking their kick.

VARIATION 2

Speed up the game by having players “play on” and kick quickly after they mark the ball.

VARIATION 3

Players can try using their opposite foot.
