-COMMENTATOR:

-Rachel Yankey - top international footballer

0:00:440:00:48

and all-round sporting superstar.

0:00:480:00:51

But when Rachel's not scoring goals for her team,

0:00:510:00:54

she's playing with the Footy Pups.

0:00:540:00:57

KIDS CHEER

0:00:590:01:00

Hi, everyone. We're all warmed up so it's time to get moving.

0:01:040:01:08

Today, on my team, we have...

0:01:120:01:14

Oscar.

0:01:140:01:16

Well done, Oscar.

0:01:170:01:19

Charlotte.

0:01:210:01:22

That's it, Charlotte - dribble the ball.

0:01:220:01:25

Sam.

0:01:250:01:27

Super skills, Sam.

0:01:280:01:30

Chloe.

0:01:320:01:33

Chloe, that's fantastic!

0:01:330:01:36

Charlie.

0:01:370:01:39

Keep it nice and close, Charlie.

0:01:390:01:42

Poppy.

0:01:430:01:44

Great dribbling, Poppy.

0:01:440:01:46

Also joining us are Footy Pups Rozzie and Rex.

0:01:460:01:50

PUPS LAUGH

0:01:500:01:51

So that's today's team.

0:01:520:01:54

OK, guys, gather round - it's team talk time.

0:01:560:01:58

CHEERING

0:01:580:02:00

Today we're going to be looking at a skill called a half volley.

0:02:000:02:04

It's a skill you might use when the ball bounces in front of you.

0:02:040:02:08

When the ball is off the ground, you use your laces to kick the ball

0:02:080:02:12

forward, a bit like this.

0:02:120:02:14

-ALL:

-Wow!

0:02:140:02:15

There are three main things to remember

0:02:150:02:18

when we're doing a half volley.

0:02:180:02:20

We need to look for the ball, let it bounce,

0:02:200:02:22

and kick it with our laces.

0:02:220:02:24

-ALL:

-Look for the ball.

0:02:240:02:26

Let it bounce.

0:02:260:02:28

Kick it with our laces.

0:02:280:02:30

Well done, guys. OK, let's go and have a practice.

0:02:300:02:34

CHEERING

0:02:340:02:35

Each of you have a football.

0:02:370:02:38

To practise our half volleys, we're going to drop the ball, let it

0:02:380:02:42

bounce and kick it forward, like this.

0:02:420:02:46

-Are you ready? KIDS:

-Yeah!

0:02:460:02:49

OK, off you go.

0:02:490:02:50

Oscar concentrates. Lovely stuff.

0:02:500:02:53

Sam's up next. Superb!

0:02:540:02:56

Chloe, well done.

0:02:560:02:58

The team are working hard here.

0:02:580:03:00

You've got to remember - let it bounce.

0:03:000:03:02

Phenomenal skills by Oscar.

0:03:020:03:04

Drop it, let it bounce and then kick it.

0:03:040:03:07

Yeah!

0:03:070:03:08

There's no stopping these guys.

0:03:080:03:11

What part of your foot are you going to use to kick the ball?

0:03:140:03:17

-Your lace.

-Your laces.

0:03:170:03:19

Oh, Poppy, that is superb!

0:03:190:03:22

Keep your eyes on the ball. Keep watching the ball. Off you go.

0:03:240:03:28

Oh, that was easy for you!

0:03:280:03:30

Charlotte - fantastic!

0:03:320:03:34

Oscar's got the hang of this.

0:03:340:03:37

Oh, Sam!

0:03:380:03:39

So has Poppy.

0:03:390:03:40

Oh, brilliant, Sam - well done!

0:03:410:03:43

Do you want to show me? Come on, then. Show me how to do it.

0:03:430:03:47

Whilst these guys keep practising, here's a reminder for you at home.

0:03:470:03:51

When doing a half volley,

0:03:510:03:53

look for the ball...

0:03:530:03:54

let it bounce...

0:03:540:03:56

and kick it with your laces.

0:03:560:03:58

OK, now I'm going to challenge you. This time, run to the ball and

0:04:000:04:04

kick it when it's moving. I'm going to bounce the ball against the wall.

0:04:040:04:09

One at a time you need to run forwards, let it bounce

0:04:090:04:12

-and then kick it into the goal. Are you ready? KIDS:

-Yeah!

0:04:120:04:15

-Let's go.

-Oscar lines himself up.

0:04:150:04:17

What a goal!

0:04:170:04:18

Make sure you're looking for the ball. Get ready for the bounce.

0:04:200:04:24

-Good advice, Rachel.

-Brilliant goal!

-Sam's looking confident.

0:04:240:04:28

-KIDS:

-Yay!

0:04:280:04:29

Poppy's next.

0:04:290:04:30

Great goal!

0:04:320:04:33

Wait for the bounce.

0:04:330:04:35

Oh, well done!

0:04:350:04:37

A great half volley!

0:04:380:04:40

Oscar moves. Can he score?

0:04:400:04:42

Yes!

0:04:420:04:43

Charlotte runs forward.

0:04:430:04:45

Oh, fantastic half volley!

0:04:450:04:48

There's no stopping these guys.

0:04:480:04:50

There you go. Watch the bounce.

0:04:520:04:55

Perfect, Sam!

0:04:550:04:56

-You're great at half volleys, Rex.

-Ha-ha! Thanks.

0:04:560:04:59

Hey! Do you remember that time I wore my new football boots and we

0:04:590:05:03

-played Kangaroo-nited?

-Oh, yeah!

0:05:030:05:05

Welcome to another thrilling match, here at Pupton Park.

0:05:090:05:12

-And it looks like Freddie has some exciting news.

-Huddle up, Pups!

0:05:120:05:16

Today we're playing the springiest team in the league -

0:05:160:05:20

Kangaroo-nited!

0:05:200:05:21

G'day, mate!

0:05:240:05:25

Your pitch is a real beaut.

0:05:250:05:27

We'll be bouncing on this all arvo!

0:05:270:05:30

And it's great grub, too.

0:05:300:05:32

Those kangaroos are bouncing around so much!

0:05:320:05:37

I wonder if it's going to be harder for us to get the ball from them.

0:05:370:05:41

We could try bouncing around with them. Allez oop!

0:05:410:05:45

I can't wait to get out there and try my brand-new football boots.

0:05:450:05:49

They look brilliant!

0:05:490:05:50

Think of all the amazing kicks you can do!

0:05:500:05:53

I don't want to do anything that will get them dirty and mucky.

0:05:530:05:57

But that's what football boots are for.

0:05:570:06:00

This is how I'm going to get onto the pitch, so I don't wear them out.

0:06:000:06:04

Rex might have trouble

0:06:040:06:05

not using his shoes against the kangaroos today,

0:06:050:06:09

and I wonder what kind of moves the Cheer-fleaders are going to use.

0:06:090:06:13

We should do something make the kangaroos really feel at home.

0:06:130:06:17

We've got some Australian instruments called didgeridoos

0:06:170:06:21

-to play for them.

-Great! We'll dance to the music.

0:06:210:06:24

There's not much beat to dance to.

0:06:270:06:29

-ALL:

-Oh!

0:06:290:06:30

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:06:330:06:35

The match starts, and it looks like Kangaroo-united

0:06:350:06:38

might be very tricky to play against.

0:06:380:06:41

This'll be easy! They're not moving fast at all.

0:06:410:06:44

Keep up, cobber!

0:06:440:06:46

Where's Rex?

0:06:460:06:48

Uh-oh! I don't want to get my boots dirty,

0:06:480:06:50

but I've still got to kick the ball.

0:06:500:06:53

I know - I can kick the ball on the top of my boot

0:06:530:06:56

so it only hits my laces!

0:06:560:06:59

Oh, bones!

0:06:590:07:00

I've kicked it the wrong way!

0:07:000:07:03

Oh! This game is far too bouncy!

0:07:030:07:07

-Come on, Pups!

-You aren't bouncing enough!

0:07:070:07:09

I'm springy enough to bounce for all of us.

0:07:090:07:13

Allez...oop!

0:07:130:07:16

Ha-ha! Now I'm far enough away to keep my lovely new boots

0:07:160:07:19

nice and clean.

0:07:190:07:20

Quick, Rex - get the ball!

0:07:210:07:24

Oh!

0:07:240:07:25

Hey, if I wait for the bounce,

0:07:250:07:27

I can kick it with the top of my foot, again!

0:07:270:07:31

Ha!

0:07:310:07:32

Nice shot, Rex.

0:07:330:07:34

Now I can get it.

0:07:340:07:36

-Bad luck, Benny!

-KANGAROO LAUGHS

0:07:360:07:38

Oh, bones...

0:07:380:07:40

Wait for the bounce, and kick it from the top of my foot.

0:07:400:07:43

-Ha!

-Thanks, Rex - I love to jump!

0:07:430:07:47

Bing...go!

0:07:470:07:50

Bing... Hey!

0:07:500:07:51

What a howler!

0:07:530:07:55

-COMMENTATOR:

-You've got to feel for the poor keeper there,

0:07:550:07:58

as Kangaroo-nited make it 1-0. I wonder if

0:07:580:08:01

the Cheer-fleaders are having any better luck with their routine.

0:08:010:08:05

How can we dance to the didgeridoos if there's no beat to dance to?

0:08:050:08:09

I know - let's try bouncing over the didgeridoos

0:08:090:08:13

like kangaroos!

0:08:130:08:15

-Hup!

-Hup!

-Hup!

-Hup!

0:08:150:08:16

Let's jump back the other way!

0:08:160:08:19

-ALL:

-Oh!

0:08:190:08:20

THEY LAUGH

0:08:200:08:22

PUPS SIGH

0:08:220:08:23

Don't worry, Pups. You can still find a way to score!

0:08:230:08:26

But, Freddie, the kangaroos are super bouncy!

0:08:260:08:31

And Rex is the only pup who's managed to kick the ball!

0:08:310:08:35

Even though he doesn't want to.

0:08:350:08:37

All I'm doing is waiting for it to bounce,

0:08:370:08:40

and kicking it with the top of my boot,

0:08:400:08:42

so it hits the laces instead of my shiny news shoes.

0:08:420:08:45

Maybe we should all kick just like Rex -

0:08:450:08:48

hitting the ball after the bounce, on our laces.

0:08:480:08:52

He-he! Well done, Rozzie.

0:08:520:08:55

That's called a half volley.

0:08:550:08:57

If you kick it after the bounce,

0:08:570:09:00

it's a great way to control where the ball goes.

0:09:000:09:03

You can even shoot it over the heads of other players!

0:09:030:09:07

Ha-ha!

0:09:070:09:08

Aargh! Mind my new boots!

0:09:080:09:10

Hey - if I help everyone else do these kicks

0:09:100:09:13

it'll help keep the ball away from my new boots.

0:09:130:09:16

Sounds like a puppy plan!

0:09:160:09:18

-COMMENTATOR:

-There's everything to play for

0:09:200:09:23

at the beginning of the second half,

0:09:230:09:25

and Kangaroo-nited are springing into action.

0:09:250:09:30

Don't forget, Pickles - bounce THEN kick!

0:09:300:09:33

It works!

0:09:350:09:36

And I can kick the ball much further.

0:09:360:09:39

BOTH: Hey!

0:09:390:09:41

Erm...

0:09:410:09:42

Use the top of your boot, Geraldine!

0:09:420:09:45

Half volley, allez oop!

0:09:450:09:47

My word! The Pups are really getting the hang of these half volleys.

0:09:470:09:51

You can use a half volley to get the ball over him, Rozzie.

0:09:510:09:54

OK, here goes...

0:09:540:09:56

Whoop!

0:09:560:09:57

Wahey!

0:09:570:09:58

-REX LAUGHS

-Everyone's playing so well

0:09:580:10:01

the ball's going nowhere near my new boots!

0:10:010:10:04

Now I can take a pup-tastic shot at their goal.

0:10:040:10:07

But don't kick the ball on the way down, Benny -

0:10:070:10:10

wait for the bounce!

0:10:100:10:12

BENNY BARKS

0:10:120:10:14

Oh!

0:10:140:10:15

Quick, Rex - you've got to shoot now!

0:10:150:10:18

Oh, bones!

0:10:180:10:19

The game's nearly over.

0:10:190:10:21

If I can just keep using the top of my boots...

0:10:210:10:25

Ha-ha!

0:10:250:10:26

Wait for the bounce...

0:10:270:10:29

Ya!

0:10:290:10:31

PUPS CHEER

0:10:310:10:32

-COMMENTATOR:

-And, with that half volley,

0:10:340:10:36

Rex scores for the Footy Pups.

0:10:360:10:38

Hup! Hup! Come on, Cheer-fleaders -

0:10:380:10:41

let's try bouncing again!

0:10:410:10:43

THEY CHEER

0:10:430:10:45

-ALL:

-The ball must bounce and then you kick.

0:10:450:10:48

That is our half volley trick!

0:10:480:10:50

Go, go, go...

0:10:500:10:53

Rex!

0:10:530:10:54

Yippee! We didgeri did it!

0:10:540:10:58

Well done, laddie. You helped everyone to half volley and score!

0:10:580:11:03

Good on you, Rex.

0:11:030:11:04

What a ripper! And we really like your new boots.

0:11:040:11:08

Thanks. And I really like all your bouncing.

0:11:080:11:11

Bounce, bounce, bounce...

0:11:110:11:13

-ALL:

-Rex, no!

0:11:130:11:14

Oh, bones! My boots!

0:11:150:11:18

Maybe I need to get some new ones.

0:11:180:11:20

ALL LAUGH

0:11:200:11:22

You're brilliant at half volleys, Rex.

0:11:240:11:27

REX LAUGHS

0:11:270:11:28

Thanks. I like kicking a bouncy ball.

0:11:280:11:31

-Hi, guys. BOTH:

-Hi, Rachel.

0:11:310:11:33

-Have you guys been practising your half volleys?

-We sure have, Rachel.

0:11:330:11:37

Yeah. I love kicking footballs that bounce really high.

0:11:370:11:41

You only need a little bounce for a half volley, though - like this.

0:11:410:11:46

REX LAUGHS

0:11:460:11:47

Yeah. But you can also kick a really bouncy ball - like this!

0:11:470:11:51

Ha!

0:11:510:11:52

-Huh?

-Hey...

0:11:540:11:55

Where'd it go?

0:11:550:11:57

RACHEL LAUGHS

0:11:570:11:58

Do you guys remember how to do a half volley?

0:11:580:12:02

Remember to

0:12:020:12:03

look for the ball...

0:12:030:12:05

let it bounce...

0:12:050:12:06

..and kick it with your laces.

0:12:070:12:09

OK, guys - who fancies a game? KIDS CHEER

0:12:110:12:15

So I've split you into two teams.

0:12:150:12:18

We've got the Gazelles - Gazelles,

0:12:180:12:20

can you give me a big cheer? THEY CHEER

0:12:200:12:22

Fantastic. And we're got the Wildebeests -

0:12:220:12:25

Wildebeests, let me hear you cheer. THEY CHEER

0:12:250:12:28

Brilliant. Let's take a look with the Footy Pups

0:12:280:12:31

to find out how to play. Come and have a look.

0:12:310:12:35

To play this game, you'll need to be ready to respond.

0:12:350:12:38

When the whistle blows, the first player on each team grabs a ball,

0:12:380:12:43

takes it to the spot,

0:12:430:12:44

bounces the ball on the floor,

0:12:440:12:46

and then kicks it at the goal with their laces.

0:12:460:12:50

They run back to their team-mates, high five,

0:12:500:12:52

and it's the next player's turn. The winners of this game will be

0:12:520:12:56

the team who score the most goals from half volleys.

0:12:560:13:01

OK, guys, are you ready? KIDS CHEER

0:13:010:13:03

Three, two, one...

0:13:030:13:05

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:13:050:13:07

Both teams race forward.

0:13:070:13:08

Oh! Charlie's hit the crossbar.

0:13:080:13:11

Make sure you high five your team-mate. Grab a ball.

0:13:110:13:15

Drop the ball, let it bounce and then kick it.

0:13:150:13:18

-Lovely goal!

-KIDS CHEER

0:13:180:13:20

Charlotte looks determined.

0:13:200:13:22

Oh, well done, Charlotte!

0:13:220:13:25

Make sure it bounces. Keep your eyes on the ball.

Great advice from Rachel. And it pays off - a great goal.

0:13:270:13:32

Oh, a little too much, Poppy.

0:13:320:13:34

Guys, slow yourself down when you get to that spot.

0:13:340:13:37

ALL CHEER

0:13:370:13:38

The Pups are on the edge of their seat.

0:13:380:13:41

Quick, quick, quick, guys! Off you go, Sam.

0:13:410:13:44

CHEERING

0:13:440:13:45

-Drop the ball...

-Sam looks for another goal.

0:13:450:13:48

Yeah, fantastic goal, Sam.

0:13:480:13:50

Keep your eyes on the ball. Let it bounce.

0:13:500:13:53

Great half volley - well done.

0:13:530:13:56

Oh! Too high!

0:13:560:13:57

There's not long left.

0:13:570:13:59

Drop the ball and score a goal.

0:14:010:14:03

Good bounce, but it's gone wide.

0:14:030:14:05

-This could be anyone's game.

-That's it - let it bounce.

0:14:050:14:09

Score a goal!

0:14:110:14:13

WHISTLE BLOWS And time.

0:14:130:14:17

Let's have a replay.

0:14:170:14:18

Both the Wildebeest and the Gazelles had an amazing game -

0:14:180:14:22

dropping, bouncing and kicking footballs into goal.

0:14:220:14:25

But who will be today's winners?

0:14:250:14:27

Let's go to Footy Pups Rex and Rozzie for the final scores.

0:14:270:14:31

The Wildebeests managed six half volleys into the goal,

0:14:310:14:35

while the Gazelles managed eight,

0:14:350:14:37

making the Gazelles today's half volley victors!

0:14:370:14:42

My team today have been fantastic at half volleys.

0:14:420:14:45

We've practised on our own,

0:14:450:14:47

we've practised together,

0:14:470:14:50

and we've played as a team.

0:14:500:14:51

But, most importantly, we've remembered to look, bounce,

0:14:510:14:55

and kick.

0:14:550:14:56

That's it for today, guys. Well done, everyone.

0:14:560:14:59

Now you've got the skill, remember to pass it on.
