Soccer drill procedure

"Keep your head up" to avoid bumping into other players; things will get tight.

The drill is more difficult for players than the animation leads you to believe. Dribble paths cross often and can surprise the dribbler. He should keep the ball close and he will automatically take his eyes off the ball.


The players dribble around the cones, as shown in the animation. The yellow player dribbles around the red cone, the black player dribbles around the blue cone.
