Keep Away Soccer

Split students into two teams. Have one or both teams wear jerseys so players can tell who is on their team. Begin with three or four players keeping it away from one player. For the lower skill levels, begin the keep-away game with only one or two players, rotating them periodically. As the players become more comfortable with the ball, the teams can be made more even. Players try to keep possession of the ball by passing the ball with their teammates. The team that does not have possession attempts to regain the ball and keep the ball away from the other team. Points can be given if teams make a certain number of passes before the other team touches the ball. Assign players a position so they have a spot on the field they know they should play near.
