Kids Soccer Games: "Spaceman"

Getting rid of the ‘pack’ mentality is important early in soccer. Spacing between players is a
good skill to learn, and you can teach it using this kids soccer game called "Spaceman."

kids soccer gamesWhat you need

Give all of the kids in the group a soccer ball. Place 4 pylons equal distance apart, creating a squared area of about 25 yard by 25 yards.

Give the kids a ball and have them make sure they are equal distance between each other to start. They should be about 10 to 12 feet away from one another.

How this kids soccer game works

When the coach blows the whistle the players must dribble the ball around the inside of the
pyloned area.

Players must try to maintain that 10 to 12 feet between all of the other players on the field.
The only way they are going to be able to do this is to keep their heads up and make sure they know where the other players are.

Coaches should emphasize the importance of spacing when players are passing and trying to move the ball.
