    1. Play match  “The castle”


    Inside the castle (2/3 met x 2/3 met in the middle of the field made of 4 cones) there is a jolly player that must receive the ball before the goal (see picture). In the castle there is only the jolly, and can not enter other players. Thanks to this rule, when the disabled becomes the joker, is involved emotionally into the match

    All players in turn can be the joker.

    Play exercise “colored goals”


    The game lasts 10 minutes. Each athlete chooses a partner, non disabled or disabled child, creating many pairs in order to help each other. Disabled player wins 1 point every time he makes a goal in the goals of the color called. The player without disability wins 1 point every time he scores before the opponent.


    At the start the players run with the ball near their feet trying to make goals in the goals of the color called.


    At the end of the 10 minutes, the team that scored the most goals wins. The team that wins the game gets 1 goal. If the two teams tie, they get 1 goal each
