Are your soccer teammates getting tired of the same old drills or routine? Playing soccer in a dome all year is excellent for honing soccer skills, but too much of one sport will burn out even the most die-hard players. Here are some of the mini-games that you can try out at the best indoor soccer facilities and help the soccer enthusiasts like you to enjoy your game.
Check out some of the fun drills and games that will spice up your indoor soccer team’s training time.
Some Soccer Mini games
- Freeze tag Soccer
- This is a variation of a schoolyard game, freeze tag. Most of us remember this game from our childhood, where the tagged person is frozen until an unfrozen player comes to rescue them. It bothers me that you didn’t think to play it with soccer balls the same way.
- To play this one, a single teammate is designated as “it,” and the rest of the team takes their soccer balls and tries to keep them away from “it.” If the chaser touches a ball, that player is then frozen.
- They must stand legs apart, holding their ball above the head. They can be unfrozen if another player can dribble their ball through the frozen player’s legs. Continue until all players are frozen.
- Soccer blob
- Another variation on a tag-type game begins with two players holding hands. They are “the blob” and chase down all the other players who will be dribbling their ball.
- Should the blob kick away a ball, and that player must link hands with the blob. As the blob grows, it becomes more challenging to move, but it’s also harder for players to avoid it!
- Keep growing the blob until one player remains. That player wins that round, but they become the blob for the next round. Keep playing the game until everyone is falling over themselves.
- Death Square
- It has all players dribble around within a square. Perfect for an indoor soccer field where the area might be limited.
- The plan is to control your ball while trying to kick out everyone else’s. If you try to kick a ball out of the death square, you get the point, and the other player needs to follow after their ball.
- The player then needs to show a skill before being able to re-enter the death squarely. This can be juggling the ball “keep-up” style for various touches or dancing on the ball for 10 “Mississippi’s.” The player with the most points wins!
- Battle Field
- This skill game is similar to dodge ball and is excellent for any number of players. Coach gets a ball and player’s line up at the end of the field. They try to run across to the other side while the coach tries to peg one of them with a soccer ball.
- If you get to touch or hit, you join the firing squad. The game continues till all players are hit.
- A stray ball can damage if kicked with more power. This game is not for little children.
- The good part about playing this game indoors usually does not have to go too far to recover a ball that sails past everyone.
These are the ideal mini-games that you can try out in the best indoor facilities. You can play them with your friends and utilize your time to the best. Indoor soccer is fun, but mixing things up with games like this keeps everyone coming back to the soccer dome.
