*New* Non-Stop FootBall.

Place a large cone on the grass.

One team v one team, 7 v 7.

Team one line up next to the cone.

The player at the front of the queue stands in front of the cone.

He or she is the Kicker.

The Kicker waits for team two’s Passer.

The game starts with team two’s Passer, to pass the football fairly along the ground to team’s one Kicker.

The Kicker then kicks the football as hard as he or she can to the field.

He or she can try to kick it along the ground or in the air.

Minus the teams two Passer, team two have five players on the field, to trap the football and one player behind the kicker/cone, for when the kicker misses their kick from the pass or when the player fields the football and passes it to the Passer for another pass to the waiting Kicker.

Team two player(s) attempt to control the football by either trapping the ball then passing it to the Passer, or if it comes to them the players in the air they control it. They can make teams one Kicker out by, one controlling the football with their head, chest, thigh or foot. A) It must be controlled then trapped with their foot to make the Kicker out. They then pass it back to the Passer. B) If it comes to team’s two Player along the ground the only way the Player can now C) get the Kicker out is if the Kicker whilst running five metres from one cone to another to score points is got out by the Passer passing the football and hitting the cone. The Kicker must run having kicked the football from the Passers pass, five metres around the two cones to score points whilst team two field the football and pass it back to the Passer. Team one the Kickers must attempt to run around the cones as many times as they can whilst team two Players get the football under control and passed back to the Passer. The Passer is about five metres away from the Kicker. The Passer he or she stands by a cone too.

The game continues with team two passing the football to team one’s Kicker. If team two don’t control the football from the Kickers kick in the air once they’ve controlled it and passed it back to the Passer, or trapping it from a kick along the ground, having the Kicker running between the cones to score points, the Passer then just does another pass to the Kicker.

There are two ways the Kicker can get out. A) if the fielder controls the football from the air, B) the Kicker misses the kick and the Passers pass hits the cone and C) the Kicker whilst trying to run and score points gets passed out by the Passer as he or she aims at the cone with a quick fast pass. It is allowed to be a fast pass if the Kicker is still running between the cones. Team two have a player behind the cone incase the Kicker misses the pass or is running between the cones having done a kick from the Passer, team two. The idea is for team two to control the Kickers kick as fast as they can and pass it to the Passer so he or she can try and catch the Kicker out whilst they are running to get as many points as they can.

Once team one gets a Kicker out, as per above ways, team one and two swap and the game continues with Passers/players then becoming Kickers/players.

The winner is the team after seven rounds, ( so that all players get a turn at been a kicker ), that has the most runned points. For children they will get out more often than an adults playing the game. As adults will kick further when been a kicker.

You may even want to introduce a rule that once a Kicker has scored/run around the cones 15-20 times, they then retire.

Depending on whose playing the game you may have a Teacher, Coach or Child counting the score.
