x1 football or round ball per Auskicker
x1 cone per Auskicker
A single goal post
x1 adult per group
HOW TO SET UP
Use the cones to make a circle, with the goal post target in the middle.
Auskickers are to have one ball and a stand next to a cone
On "go" Auskickers kick their footy and aim for the stick!
Anyone who hits the stick gets a point.
Slowly up the points the target is worth. Be careful- get up to thousand or a million points.
As Auskicker busily "kick the stick", provide some handy hints like:
- Point the toes at the stick ( your target);
- Hold the ball over the leg you're kicking with, and;
- Keep your head over the ball.
Have Auskickers aim to kick over the target, or have an adult handball to the Auskicker befor they turn and kick at the stick
Try a run up befor the kick.
Expriment with different ball and encourage Auskickers to kick on their alternate foot
Make sure everyone takes care as footballs will be flying everywhere.
Make sure everyone knows they can't collect the balls until you say so
