Have fun with headers

KING OF THE SKIES

“Jump as high as you can” • “Keep your eyes on the ball” • “Head just below the centre”

Set out a 12 x 10 yards area with a goal at each end. You need two teams of five players. This is a tight area to help with headed passing.

Scoring goals can only be done with a header. The game starts with a throw out from the goalkeeper onto the head of a team-mate.

Players must try to head the ball on without it hitting the ground. If the ball does hit the ground it should be flicked up onto the head of a team-mate.

The defending team should try and intercept the ball by heading it away.
