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


  • Place lots of obstacles or domes – mines - inside the playing area; include a number of hoops
  • Divide the players into 4 teams, one at each side of the playing area; each player has a ball
  • The players must dodge the ‘mines’ as they travel from one side of the playing area to the other bouncing the ball in any hoop they pass
  • Initially one team at a time navigates the minefield; gradually increase the number of teams navigating the minefield at the same time

Key Points

  • Ensure the players have enough room to move around safely
  • No pushing or bumping
