Soccer Chain Game - Fun Team Building Game

Setup

  1. Create a large grid approximately 40X40 yards.
  2. One player is designated as the chain player.
  3. The other remaining players dribble around inside the grid.

Instructions

  1. Have all of the players start by dribbling around the grid in constant motion.
  2. As the drill starts, the chain player attempts to touch any of the players with their hands or touch the player's ball with their feet.
  3. Once a player or player's ball is touched, that player joins the end of the chain by holding hands.
  4. As the chain grows, it will be more important for the chain to come together and attack a player as a unit.
  5. This chain game allows for many teachable moments, so make sure the kids are having fun, but step in and capture those moments.

Coaching Points

  • This game is a team-building exercise, so make sure the kids are having fun.
  • If the kids are going off in their own direction and breaking the chain, make sure someone steps up to lead the team in the most effective direction.
  • Going after the slower players early makes the chain slower, so choosing the right targets becomes more strategic in older kids.
