Building a community where fitness and play are the foundation for all families.
I usually play this game outside during our soccer skills unit. I create a large square using cones on the field that serves as the boundary. On each side of the square, I place a Pugg soccer goal. Each of the four teams lines up behind their goal, along their sideline. As you watch the video below substitute the gator ball and paddles with a soccer ball. It’s the same game with a different skill set.
Watch how 4-sided soccer can easily be played in a smaller space with paddles. In the video, I first describe the setup. Then you can see the game in action.

Justin, have you done this with grades 4 and 5. Do you always play without goalies, or do you allow each group to decide?
Hey Teri. I have played it with my 4th and 5th grades. However, in a much bigger space. They really enjoyed the soccer version. We discuss strategy and I let them decide whether or not to have a goalie.
