Rachel Yankey,

0:00:440:00:46

top international footballer

0:00:460:00:48

and all-round sporting superstar.

0:00:480:00:51

But when Rachel is not scoring goals for her team,

0:00:510:00:54

she's playing with the Footy Pups.

0:00:540:00:57

CHEERING AND LAUGHTER

0:00:590:01:01

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

0:01:030:01:08

Today on my team, we have...

0:01:100:01:12

Number one, Zainab.

0:01:120:01:15

Well done!

0:01:150:01:18

Number two, Charlie.

0:01:180:01:21

Super dribbling!

0:01:210:01:24

Number three, Willow.

0:01:240:01:27

That's brilliant!

0:01:270:01:29

Number four, Jake.

0:01:290:01:33

Fantastic skills!

0:01:330:01:35

Number five, Sadie.

0:01:350:01:39

Amazing!

0:01:390:01:41

Number six, Jayden.

0:01:410:01:43

Ah, look at that!

0:01:430:01:47

And also joining us are Benny and Geraldine.

0:01:470:01:50

THEY GIGGLE

0:01:500:01:51

So that's today's team.

0:01:520:01:53

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

0:01:550:01:58

-KIDS:

-Yeah!

0:01:580:01:59

Today, we're going to look at different ways to strike a football.

0:01:590:02:03

What ways might we kick a ball?

0:02:030:02:05

-Jayden?

-You could chip it.

0:02:050:02:07

You could strike the lower part of the ball to chip it off the ground.

0:02:070:02:11

-Sadie?

-Shooting the ball at the goal.

0:02:110:02:14

To shoot at the goal, you need a powerful kick

0:02:140:02:17

in the middle of the ball with the top of your foot.

0:02:170:02:19

There are three things to remember when we're striking a ball.

0:02:190:02:23

Think about the distance you want the ball to go,

0:02:230:02:25

how high you want it to go

0:02:250:02:28

and how much power we need to strike the ball with.

0:02:280:02:31

-Think about the...

-ALL: Distance...height...

0:02:310:02:35

-And power!

-ALL: Power!

0:02:350:02:38

OK, let's go and have a practice.

0:02:380:02:40

I've split you into pairs.

0:02:430:02:45

In between you is a bar on top of some cones.

0:02:450:02:48

You need to pass the ball back and forth,

0:02:480:02:51

but you need to chip it over the bar.

0:02:510:02:53

OK, go.

0:02:530:02:54

A lovely start from the pups.

0:02:540:02:57

Oh, well done.

0:02:570:02:59

See if you can get it up. Oh, hit the bar!

0:02:590:03:02

Make sure you get your foot underneath the ball.

0:03:020:03:05

Then I lean back so it goes up.

0:03:050:03:08

Fantastic stuff, Zainab!

0:03:080:03:10

Yes!

0:03:100:03:12

Can you get it? Yes!

0:03:120:03:14

Next time you play outside, why don't you try this?

0:03:140:03:17

-You put your foot under the ball.

-Yeah.

-And then chip it up!

0:03:170:03:22

Fantastic.

0:03:220:03:23

Sadie has the right idea.

0:03:230:03:26

Yes!

0:03:260:03:28

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

0:03:280:03:32

When striking the ball,

0:03:320:03:33

remember to think about the distance you want the ball to go,

0:03:330:03:38

how high you want it to go,

0:03:380:03:40

and how much power you need to strike the ball with.

0:03:400:03:43

Now I'm going to challenge you. In front of you are some goals.

0:03:440:03:48

Some are close and some are further away.

0:03:480:03:50

One at a time, grab a ball and try and score a goal.

0:03:500:03:54

I'm going to be in the middle

0:03:540:03:56

and I'm going to try and stop you from scoring.

0:03:560:03:59

Off you go.

0:03:590:04:00

I wonder which goal Zainab is going to go for?

0:04:000:04:03

Rachel's given the goals points.

0:04:030:04:05

That's five points!

0:04:050:04:07

Ooh!

0:04:070:04:09

Charlie goes for the furthest goal. That's a whopping ten points!

0:04:090:04:14

Well done, Willow. She's really pleased with that.

0:04:140:04:17

You guys can't score past me!

0:04:170:04:19

-My go!

-Kick!

0:04:190:04:20

Oh, it's huge!

0:04:200:04:23

-THEY CHEER

-Oh, no!

0:04:230:04:24

Sadie lines it up.

0:04:240:04:26

Oh, ten points!

0:04:260:04:28

You guys are too good!

0:04:280:04:30

Yes!

0:04:300:04:32

Nice goal, Jayden.

0:04:320:04:33

You're not going to score...

0:04:330:04:35

Oh, straight between your fingers, Rachel!

0:04:350:04:38

Benny, you really are a super striker!

0:04:380:04:42

Thanks, Geraldine. Do you remember the time

0:04:420:04:44

I brought my inflatable ball to Pupton Park?

0:04:440:04:47

Oh, yeah!

0:04:470:04:49

Welcome to Pupton Park, where the pups are kicking off

0:04:510:04:54

an important training session.

0:04:540:04:56

Rrrruuff!

0:04:560:04:58

-ALL:

-Bow-wow!

0:04:580:04:59

Great shot, Benny! Why don't you show the other pups

0:04:590:05:02

different ways they can strike the ball?

0:05:020:05:05

Hurry, Freddie - today, we've got a special guest

0:05:050:05:08

who's coming to judge me for the Tidiest Tiny Groundskeeper award.

0:05:080:05:13

Pupton Park needs to look perfect if we're going to win.

0:05:130:05:16

But I've heard the judge is very fussy,

0:05:160:05:19

so whatever you do, keep those footballs under control.

0:05:190:05:23

Come on, Freddie - you can empty my grass cuttings.

0:05:230:05:26

-Ooh!

-Benny, why are we learning how to kick a ball?

0:05:260:05:30

Don't we know how to do that already?

0:05:300:05:32

Yes, but did you know you can make the ball do different things

0:05:320:05:36

by striking it in different ways?

0:05:360:05:38

I've brought along a special inflatable football

0:05:380:05:41

to help show you.

0:05:410:05:42

Here you go, Benny.

0:05:420:05:44

It's not supposed to be that big!

0:05:450:05:47

OK, Pickles - let's try a long shot.

0:05:490:05:52

This needs a powerful kick,

0:05:520:05:54

so take a big run-up and strike the ball in the middle,

0:05:540:05:58

then follow through with your foot.

0:05:580:06:00

Sure thing, Benny.

0:06:000:06:02

Rrrruuff!

0:06:020:06:04

-Go, Pickles!

-That would make a great goal kick.

0:06:040:06:08

-Or a long pass.

-Now, Rex - let's try chipping the ball.

0:06:080:06:12

This lifts it high in the air past a keeper or defender.

0:06:120:06:15

Just lean back and strike here on the bottom of the ball.

0:06:150:06:19

You've got it, Benny.

0:06:190:06:21

Ah! Ha-ha!

0:06:210:06:22

THEY CHEER

0:06:220:06:24

Let's try a driven shot, Rozzie.

0:06:240:06:26

You need to lean over the ball and strike it in the middle.

0:06:260:06:30

It's great for fast passes and tough for goalkeepers to save.

0:06:300:06:34

OK... Raaarrr!

0:06:340:06:38

Ha! I did it!

0:06:380:06:39

I hope you've got an extra special kick for me to try!

0:06:390:06:43

Just for you, Geraldine, I've got the toughest kick of all.

0:06:430:06:48

Meanwhile, the judging is about to begin

0:06:500:06:52

for the Tidiest Tiny Groundskeeper award.

0:06:520:06:55

Keep dusting, Freddie,

0:06:550:06:58

you've missed a bit!

0:06:580:06:59

Cheerfleaders, watch where you're putting your pom-poms.

0:06:590:07:03

That judge will be here any minute

0:07:030:07:05

and I hear he's super-snooty.

0:07:050:07:08

Pah! I'm not a cheerfleader!

0:07:080:07:11

I AM the judge.

0:07:110:07:12

Pom-poms indeed.

0:07:120:07:13

Oh, dear!

0:07:130:07:15

I'll be marking you on neatness, tidiness and most importantly,

0:07:150:07:20

the state of your grounds.

0:07:200:07:22

Huh!

0:07:220:07:23

It's a blade of grass out of place.

0:07:230:07:25

Oh, dear, dear, dear, dear.

0:07:250:07:27

CRIES

0:07:270:07:28

OK, Geraldine, this is the trickiest kick of them all.

0:07:280:07:33

You're going to curl the ball.

0:07:330:07:35

Rrrruuuff!

0:07:350:07:37

That move is magic!

0:07:370:07:39

You make the ball spin by kicking it on the side.

0:07:390:07:43

As it spins, it curls through the air.

0:07:430:07:45

See if you can get it past that goalie.

0:07:450:07:48

Got it. Allez-oop!

0:07:480:07:50

Whoops!

0:07:500:07:52

Hm...

0:07:520:07:54

Well, just look at that.

0:07:540:07:56

BOTH: What?!

0:07:560:07:58

It's a speck of dust. Oh, dear, dear, dear, dear, dear.

0:07:580:08:02

Argh! I can't get the ball to curl.

0:08:040:08:07

Remember to kick the side of the ball, so it spins.

0:08:070:08:10

Hm, spins...

0:08:100:08:12

Ah! I know!

0:08:120:08:14

Allez-oooooops!

0:08:140:08:16

Look out!

0:08:160:08:17

-Argh!

-Uh-oh!

0:08:170:08:20

Isn't she a magnificent tractor?

0:08:200:08:23

The tyres look a bit muddy to me.

0:08:230:08:26

Oh, dear!

0:08:260:08:28

This is a disaster! I've got to stop that ball!

0:08:280:08:32

Argh...arrrggghhh!

0:08:320:08:34

This is all my fault.

0:08:340:08:36

We've got to stop that ball, before it wrecks Pupton Park!

0:08:360:08:40

-Hmmm...

-Ah-ha-ha! Help!

0:08:400:08:43

Right, let's see how tidy you are in here.

0:08:430:08:45

That's a brilliant idea.

0:08:450:08:48

Ahhh!

0:08:490:08:51

Help!

0:08:510:08:52

I've got a puppy plan.

0:08:530:08:55

If we can hit the valve on the side of the ball,

0:08:550:08:57

we might be able to let the air out.

0:08:570:08:59

I'll try my long shot.

0:08:590:09:01

Strike in the middle and follow through...

0:09:010:09:05

Ruff!

0:09:050:09:06

Ah, it's high up now.

0:09:060:09:09

I'll try a chip shot.

0:09:090:09:11

Lean back and strike the bottom of the ball.

0:09:110:09:13

Oh...!

0:09:130:09:16

A driven shot might catch it -

0:09:160:09:18

lean over the ball and strike the middle.

0:09:180:09:20

Rrruuff! Ohh...

0:09:200:09:22

I can hit it with a curling shot.

0:09:220:09:25

Rrrruuff!

0:09:250:09:26

-Oh!

-What a howler.

0:09:260:09:29

It's heading back to the shed.

0:09:290:09:32

I think you should come out now, Mr Judge!

0:09:320:09:35

I've got the last ball - I'll have to try a curling shot, too.

0:09:350:09:39

Allez-oops!

0:09:390:09:40

ALL: Wow! Huh?!

0:09:430:09:46

Uh-oh...

0:09:480:09:49

Oh, I've seen enough in there.

0:09:520:09:54

Time to look at that pitch.

0:09:540:09:56

Oh, the game is up now!

0:09:560:09:59

Well, I have never seen anything like this.

0:10:010:10:06

Oh, er...

0:10:060:10:08

It's perfect! It's the most amazing, tidy pitch I have ever inspected.

0:10:080:10:14

There are many ways to strike, you can learn them all.

0:10:160:10:19

Shoot long, drive, chip and curl the ball.

0:10:190:10:22

# Go, go, go Footy Pups! #

0:10:220:10:27

Wow, well done, Geraldine!

0:10:270:10:29

That was an incredible curling shot.

0:10:290:10:32

You stopped that runaway ball and saved Pupton Park

0:10:320:10:36

before that snooty judge could notice.

0:10:360:10:39

Ahem! Attention, everybody.

0:10:390:10:42

With his perfect pitch,

0:10:420:10:43

I declare Pete the winner of the Tidiest Tiny Groundskeeper award.

0:10:430:10:50

ALL: Oh, wow!

0:10:500:10:52

Well done, Pete!

0:10:520:10:54

Argh! Oh!

0:10:540:10:56

Congratulations!

0:10:560:10:57

You won the grand prize!

0:10:570:11:00

A beautiful, brand-new shed.

0:11:000:11:03

THEY CHEER

0:11:030:11:05

Oh, well done for stopping my runaway training ball, Geraldine.

0:11:090:11:13

Thanks, Benny.

0:11:140:11:16

-Hi, guys!

-BOTH: Hi, Rachel!

0:11:160:11:18

Do you guys want to practise

0:11:180:11:19

-striking the ball in different ways?

-Definitely!

0:11:190:11:23

Let's make sure we give it loads of power.

0:11:230:11:25

OK, let's go for a really long distance.

0:11:250:11:28

Ready, steady... Go!

0:11:280:11:30

BOTH: Bow-wow!

0:11:320:11:34

Ow!

0:11:340:11:36

Wow, did you see that power?

0:11:360:11:40

Yes! They went all the way to the moon!

0:11:400:11:45

And back!

0:11:450:11:46

Do you guys remember what to think about when striking the ball?

0:11:460:11:50

Think about the distance you want the ball to go,

0:11:500:11:53

how high you want it to go,

0:11:530:11:56

and how much power you need to strike the ball with.

0:11:560:12:01

-OK, guys - who fancies a game?

-ALL: Yeah!

0:12:010:12:04

So, I've split you up into two teams.

0:12:040:12:06

We've got the Reds - Reds, can you give me a cheer?

0:12:060:12:09

REDS: Yeah!

0:12:090:12:10

-And the Yellows, give me a cheer?

-YELLOWS: Yeah!

0:12:100:12:13

Let's take a look with the Footy Pups to find out how to play.

0:12:130:12:18

To play this game of Crazy Football,

0:12:180:12:20

you need to strike the ball in different ways.

0:12:200:12:22

Strike the ball through the tunnel with a little power.

0:12:220:12:27

Dribble it to the duck pond and chip it over.

0:12:270:12:30

And finally, shoot it at the castle goal.

0:12:300:12:34

The winners of this game will be the team

0:12:340:12:36

who complete the course in the fastest time.

0:12:360:12:39

Three, two, one..

0:12:400:12:42

-PEEP!

-Off you go, teams!

0:12:420:12:44

Well done, Charlie.

0:12:440:12:47

Great power through the tunnel.

0:12:470:12:49

Dribble over towards me.

0:12:490:12:50

See if you can chip it over the pond.

0:12:500:12:53

You're going to need some height.

0:12:530:12:54

Fantastic, Charlie. Go, go, go!

0:12:540:12:57

Take it to the white line. See if you can score in the castle.

0:12:570:13:01

It's a beautiful goal!

0:13:010:13:02

Make sure you use a lot of power through that tunnel.

0:13:020:13:06

Can you chip it over the duck pond?

0:13:060:13:07

See if you can get your foot under the ball.

0:13:070:13:10

Well done, Sadie! Fantastic.

0:13:100:13:11

-TEAM:

-Sadie, Sadie!

-Fantastic support!

0:13:110:13:15

It's a big distance, so lots of power.

0:13:150:13:17

Can she make it two for the Reds?

0:13:170:13:18

Yes!

0:13:180:13:20

Zainab lines it up, no messing.

0:13:200:13:23

She's off to the duck pond.

0:13:230:13:26

Make sure you miss those ducks.

0:13:260:13:28

Oh, straight over!

0:13:280:13:29

She makes her way to the castle goal.

0:13:290:13:32

Can you score?

PEEP! Let's have a replay.

0:13:330:13:36

The Reds were brilliant at controlling,

0:13:360:13:39

chipping and shooting the ball, but can the Yellows do any better?

0:13:390:13:43

Three, two, one...

0:13:430:13:45

-PEEP!

-Go, Jayden, quick as you can!

0:13:450:13:48

Think about your power.

0:13:480:13:50

What a start from the young pup.

0:13:500:13:53

So you need to get your foot underneath the ball.

0:13:530:13:56

Chip it over those ducks. Fantastic!

0:13:560:13:58

He shoots for goal!

0:13:580:14:00

THEY CHEER

0:14:000:14:02

Go on, Willow - grab a ball, off you go!

0:14:020:14:05

That ball nearly got away!

0:14:050:14:06

She runs round to collect it.

0:14:060:14:09

See if you can get it over those ducks.

0:14:090:14:11

Mind the ducks - excellent! Take it on to the castle.

0:14:110:14:14

She's looking determined.

0:14:140:14:16

And it's in! No problem.

0:14:160:14:18

Jake's the last of the Yellows. He makes light work of the tunnel.

0:14:180:14:23

-TEAM:

-Go, Jake! Go, Jake!

0:14:230:14:25

It's a huge chip!

0:14:250:14:26

-See if you can score.

-It's all to play for...

0:14:280:14:31

-PEEP!

-And time!

0:14:310:14:33

Let's have a replay.

0:14:330:14:35

The Yellows raced through this game of Crazy Football,

0:14:350:14:38

but were they faster than the Reds?

0:14:380:14:40

Let's go to Footy Pups Benny and Geraldine for the final score.

0:14:400:14:44

The Yellows completed the course in the fastest time,

0:14:440:14:47

making them today's champions!

0:14:470:14:51

My team have been superb at striking the ball.

0:14:510:14:53

We've chipped the ball, kicked powerful balls

0:14:530:14:57

and we've shot long distances at goals.

0:14:570:14:59

Most importantly, we've remembered to think

0:14:590:15:01

about distance, height and power.

0:15:010:15:05

That's it for today. Well done.

0:15:050:15:07

Now you've got the skill,

0:15:070:15:09

remember to pass it on.

0:15:090:15:11

Rachel challenges the team and teaches them how to do some powerful kicks. At Pupton Park, Benny teaches the pups about striking the ball and a wayward kick threatens to destroy Pupton Park!
