Knock-Down Soccer

Set up a large rectangular area with boundary lines. Set up a row of 4-5 cones at opposite ends of the soccer field approximately 2 feet apart.  Divide the students into 2 groups with some visible way of recognizing who is on what team (ex: light shirts/dark shirts or jerseys). The object of the game is to knock down your opponent’s cones with a soccer ball. Cones can only be counted if it is a soccer ball that knocks them down. After a player has knocked a cone down, s/he picks up the cone, takes it to her/his side of the field, and lines it up next to her/his teams’ own row of cones. The game ends when one team has all of the cones on their side of the field. There should be at least two balls in play so that all the students are engaged in part of the game.
