HOW TO SET UP
Divide the Auskickers into the pairs. For each pair,use eight cones to mark out two small "castles" a couple of metres apart and have each Auskicker stand in the middle of their castle. The space between the castle is the "moat".
Auskicker take turns to handball or kick their footy into their partner's castle nearby.
If their ball lands in the castle, they get one point. If the footy is caught or lands in the moat(the space in between the castle), they don't receive points.
After a couple of minutes, combine pairs to make even bigger castles with more players inside. For example, go from 1 v 1 Auskicke, to 2 v 2, or 3 v 3 even upto 4 v 4.
With 2-on-2 or 4-on-4 games, Auskicker who mark the ball must handball it over to a teammate who kicks or handballs it back to the other castle. This will ensure everyone stays involved.
Award points for when the football is caught well by the Auskicker.
Put pressure on the Auskicker kicking through using a defender.
As the castles grow bigger, encourage Auskicket to communicate and to encourage on another. This is a great skill for the players to learn to bring to games.
