Crab Soccer

Split up into two teams.  Each team lines up on one side of a small soccer field, with goals at either end.  The goals can be proper goals or two chairs; The field can be any size – it depends on the size of your group but it can be half the size of a basketball court.
Players on both teams are assigned a number, starting at “1” on each team.
Put the soccer ball in the very middle of the field, then have the umpire call out a number.  The team members who have been assigned the number crab walk to the centre and try and kick the soccer ball through for a goal.
When a goal is scored, return the ball to the centre and start again.  If the ball gets stuck or kids are taking too long, call another number and the original pair return to the line.
