Materials Needed

  • Beach Ball

  • Beach (or other large outdoor area)

  • Sticks (to form goal)

Let's Play!

  • To begin, make your goal by pushing the sticks into the ground. This will need an adult's assistance as the goals should be equal in size. For younger children, place the goals closer together, for older children, place them farther apart.

  • Next, form your teams. Make sure there are at least 2 players on each team (as one should stand in the "goal." 

  • Then, follow the general rules of soccer. Of course these do not need to be firm but: 

    • Kick the ball with your feet - not touching with hands unless you are in goal. ​

    • No pushing other players

    • Try to get the ball into the goal

    • Set a time or number of goals to determine who wins OR just play for fun

    • Have fun!

  • Children will probably have a difficult time kicking the beach ball as it is so light but that's part of the fun!
