The children form two large circles. The object of this game is to work on kicking and controlling of the ball. The children select one person to go into the center. Then the rest of the team tries to make it so the person in the center does not ever touch the ball. If they do, then they get a point. The teacher blows the whistle about every 45 seconds and a new person goes into the center. Once everyone has gotten a turn, two balls are added in. And it is repeated.
