AFL Gear Cone x12 cones
AFL X Football x1 football for the group


Use the cones to create two lines across the middle of the activity square.

Nominate two players to be taggers and place them on the line. The other players all start on one edge of the square, facing the taggers.

In AFL training session creating two lines two players are tagger and others are playing in square area and facing the tagger.


When you say "Go", players try to run to the other end zone.

The taggers can only move along their lines laterally, not backwards and forwards. If they tag a player, that players joins them on the line and becomes a tagger.

Taggers can't overtake each other along their line- their position is fixed like the figures on a foosball table.

Runners must keep moving forwards, and cannot go backwards once they commence their run.

once everyone is tagged, choose new taggers and start again.
