Games to play at a Soccer Party
Soccer Obstacle Course - This is
fun for kids of all ages and skill levels. Create an obstacle
course using common backyard items that the guests will have to dribble
a soccer ball through the course and back. Take turns letting the
children use a stopwatch to time each other. Set up obstacles
using trampolines (they either have to dribble over, or under it), swing
sets (dribble in between swings), slides, hoses (lay on the ground in a
curved position so they have to follow it as they dribble), set up cones
so they can dribble around them ... use anything that is available in
The Obstacle Course can be done individually or break up into teams and
make it a relay.
Once the guests have each had a turn let them go again only this time
make them go backwards.
Soccer Skills Contest
Make up several contests with small prizes for the winners.
Dribbling Contest - set up a long line of
cones and see who can dribble the soccer ball while weaving in between
them the fastest.
Goal contest - set up a soccer goal in the
backyard or at the park and see who can make a goal from the farthest or
most difficult spot on the field.
Up in the air - see who can keep a ball
from touching the ground the longest with their heads.
A soccer scrimmage is always fun. Divide the kids into 2 teams or
have them play against the adults at the party.
