Kick Out

Game Description: 
Great game to practice kicking and making saves!
Try to kick the ball out of the circle!
Game Rules: 
Tell the children to hold hands and make a big circle, they should spread out until their arms are straight out and then they can let go. One child is given a ball (soccer ball, dodge ball or other ball) and will go to the middle of the circle. The objective of the game is for the player in the middle to kick the ball out of the circle, while the players that make up the circle will try to block it from rolling out. The only rule to the game is that the kicker must keep the ball on the ground, they are not allowed to kick it up in the air. Once the ball is kicked out of the circle, whoever was closest to where it went out will go to the middle and be the new kicker.
Saftey Considerations: 
If playing will younger children a softer ball like a dodge ball should be used.
Progression (optional): 
Try doing left foot kicks only! Try spreading out the circle even more to make it more difficult on the players trying to make saves!
