Cone hunt

This game is pure fun and it’s so simple that even four and five-year-olds can play it.

And players up to the age of 15 will enjoy playing it too!

Objective: To improve shooting technique, passing and communication.

Set up: Use a circular playing area with a 20-yard diameter.

  • Place a flat cone with a ball balanced on top of it as a target in the middle of the playing area.
  • Mark out a five-yard exclusion zone around the cone.
  • Divide your players into teams of three or four.
  • Use three teams per playing area.

How to play: Each team tries to score a point by hitting the target.

Players cannot enter the exclusion zone.

The first team to hit the target five times wins.


Add a goalkeeper or a defender to work in the exclusion zone protecting the target.

Reduce the number of touches each player is allowed.

Reduce the size of the playing area.

Play with two balls.
