Setup

  2. Each player needs a ball.

Instructions

  1. Using the space on your soccer practice field, have the players "free-dribble" anywhere they want to go.
  2. Instruct the players to listen and follow instructions as the coach give them, but ONLY when the coach says "Simon Says" before the command.
  3. Use commands such as: "Simon Says Freeze", "Simon Says, put your knee on the ball", "Simon Says, put your head on the ball", "Simon Says, put your belly on the ball", "Simon Says, put your booty on the ball", etc.
    Use some of the commands above without saying "Simon Says."
