  • Divide a 15x15 yard grid into four areas. Only use one ball.
  • One player per area (4 player total).
  • Create additional grids as necessary.
  • Coach yells “hot potato!” to start the game and the players have to pass clockwise around grid. Each successful pass of the potato gets a point. If the ball goes outside the intended area on a pass, then the score resets to zero. Try to see how high of a score each group can get!
  • Repeat game and ask groups to beat their high score!


  • Have players go counter-clockwise.
  • Have players create a figure 8 with the passing.

Coaching Points:

  • Have fun!
  • Encourage the use of the inside of the foot while passing to the next grid (Toe up, heel down)
  • Encourage players to open up their body when receiving. Receive the ball with the inside of the foot in the direction you want to do next.
