Session 8 (Last Session): 30 minutes scrimmage against other teams, 30 minutes team celebration

Game Instructions (No Goalies)
· Games are never more than 4v4. Use subs on the fly to add kids.
· Games are 30 minutes, Balance teams as needed.
· Field is 20x30. Use popup pug goals.
· Keep the ball in play and the kids on the field. No scorekeeping.
· Encourage all goals, even if they are going the wrong way.
· Try to get all kids to touch the ball. The best way to do that is to have several balls ready to go. When one goes out, shout "new ball" and throw in the new ball. Coaches/ball throwers should try to get the ball to kids who have not had touches. It is really hard to get some kids to stop chasing the balls out of bounds … but eventually they catch on.
