Snake in the Grass Youth Soccer Game


  1. Create a small grid approximately 15X15 yards.
  2. All of the players should be inside the grid.
  3. The coach should designate two players to be the "snakes" by lying on their stomachs.
  4. Each of the players begins with one of their hands on the snakes in the grass.


  1. When the coach yells "SNAKE IN THE GRASS" the non-snake players attempt to avoid the snakes as the snakes attempt to slither around on their stomach and touch a non-snake player.
  2. As a player is touched, that player also becomes a snake.
  3. The activity continues until everyone is a snake.
