Football Leadership Task Card

These task cards were used successfully in year 9 lesson, most of the pupils are very capable footballers so it made sense to push them further by adding in a leadership element.

Split group into 4 teams of 5 assigning one lead learner. The group reads the task card and sets up the drill, once the drill is set up the leader guides the group through it and provides feedback. The card includes progressions for more able groups.  After 5 minutes the groups rotate to the next drill, however the lead learner stays at their drill and teaches the next group to arrive there.

Although the cards were designed by myself the drills and content were accessed from a great website called, if you want to change the drills on the cards visit this link:
