Soccer drill procedure
It’s hard to think of another simple drill which can be varied as much as this one. This drill is similar to the previous one, except that the groups are now placed diagonally opposite each other. On this animation we haven’t shown it, but it’s also possible to have the players dribble around a marker in the centre of the field. Many, many more variations are possible. Let your imagination run wild!
Two teams stand diagonally opposite each other in two groups.On the trainer’s command, the players start to dribble across the centre of the training field towards the opposite side, to give the ball to a teammate on that side.
