We are challenging ourselves and other coaches to limit their use of cones to 5 per activity (excluding for goals). There are a couple of keys to our madness:

  • Non-game specific stimuli
  • Detracts from creativity
  • Prevents decision making related to matches and chaos
  • Can bring about unnatural physical responses e.g. dribbling through a cone set requires far more looking to the ground than we educate in a game scenario, when we encourage players to look up

It is our hope that by collaborating with other coaches, we can build a solid bank of resources to be used for inspiration in formulating our own session plans.

Keep an eye on the Twitter hashtag #5conechallenge for more resources
