Soccer drill procedure
We have one more example, but even more variants are possible; we’ll leave that to your imagination. It is important that the ball really comes to a standstill when it is placed in the center.
Call the players back if the ball is still rolling.
The format remains the same in all three versions. Make two teams and make two groups from each team. You can of course make more teams; just expand the format of this drill. To start, each group needs a start marker. In the center of the practice field, place three cones for each team; this makes two cone goals, which the groups must pass through. Place another cone a bit farther away from the cone goal.
The groups run around this one during the dribbling competition.
The starting players from each group dribble through the cone goal and run around the individual cone without a ball. Finally, they run back through the cone goal and dribble to the other group in the team. They then give the ball to the next player.
