Challenge Description: How many kick ups can you do in 60 seconds?
Scoring: You will receive one point for each consecutive kick up you complete.
Adapt for Space and Equipment: If you don’t have a football get creative and use a different type of ball, a paired of rolled up socks, a toilet roll or any other object you can find. If you are doing it indoors make sure you have enough space.
Adapt for Ability and Inclusivity: Try alternating your feet, using your head, shoulders or knees, or adding in tricks and skills. You can try using a bigger or smaller ball to adapt the difficulty, or allow the ball to bounce once between kick ups. To adapt the challenge, from a sitting position see how many tap-ups you can do with your hands.
Coaching Tips: Keep your eye on the ball, keep a straight foot and try to connect with the centre of the top of your foot.
Benefits From Challenge: This challenge will help improve your ball control, balance and timing
