Soccer drill procedure

This was predictable. The players leave their balls behind and sprint to the other field. Don’t forget the different dribbling techniques.


Two groups move throughout two playing fields. Each player dribbles a ball. There is an alley between both fields. Three cones are in the corridor, representing markers for two goals. On the coach’s signal (goal one or two), the players place one foot on the ball. The balls stay where they are and the groups quickly change sides by going through the relevant goal without any balls. They then quickly secure a ball in the other field.
