Soccer drill procedure

Now we’ll leave the ball in the field and run to the other field without it. Make sure that none of the balls are moving.


Two groups move throughout two playing fields. Each player dribbles a ball. There is an alley between both fields. At the coach’s signal, the players place a foot on their ball. The balls stay where they are and the groups quickly switch fields without them. In the other field, each player finds a ball as quickly as they can.
