Up and Under – how high can they throw or kick a ball in the air and catch it again? Great confidence builder for restarts or findings yourself under a highball in the backfield.
Clearance Kick – how far and accurately can you kick a ball? While we still want to keep the ball in-hand, with kicking now permitted this can be a handy skill to relieve pressure/find space whether you’re a forward or a back.
Target Practice – for wannabe hookers, mark 3 points on a wall in a straight vertical line but at different heights and aim for these one by one (use chalk to mark these unless parents approve otherwise 😁).
High Jump – great for lineout jumpers. Again standing side on to a wall, pole, tree or similar, bend the knees then do a straight-up jump and tap the wall etc. with your inside hand – mark the spot each time and try to beat it with your next jump.
Long Pass – no more throwing the ball in the air and hoping someone will catch it! Mark a point on a wall or similar like a dartboard 🎯 about bellybutton high, stand back and pass the ball trying to hit the mark. Practice off your left and right sides and take a step closer if you miss it and a step further back if you get it. Measure how far you’ve thrown and successfully in range.
