This U8 dribbling fun game activity is titled 'Jack Frost' and is a quick tag game that takes place in a 20 by 30-yard area. It's a fun activity that focuses on players dribbling, agility and enjoyment.
Two players are chosen to be the freezers (taggers) while the rest of the players all start with a ball.
Players will dribble around the playing area trying to evade the freezers who look to tag them.
Encourage the freezers to gently tag players by softly tapping their shoulder. If a player is tagged, they stop their ball and perform five toe-taps to unfreeze and carry-on dribbling.
After a set time period switch the freezers until every player has had a turn!
Key Coaching Points
Alternate feet when performing toe-taps.
Players with balls must have a variation in the length of their touches to evade the freezers.
Add different skill activities to be performed when a player is tagged by the Freezer (side to side instep controls etc.)
How can quick changes of direction help players evade the freezers?
