This exercise to develop agility skills is generally suitable for players of 4-6 years


  • One player acts as a ‘caller’ with their back to the rest of the players
  • The ‘caller’ gives a signal for the other players to move forward
  • They then call out ‘1, 2, 3 Red Lights’ and turn around
  • Any player they catch still moving is out
  • The exercise continues until only one player remains

Key Points

  • The players must remain alert to react to the signal
  • Focus on balance when stopping


  • An inventory of equipment to support ABC exercises is available in the Resources section
