Soccer training – Dribbling - Three Squares

Soccer drill procedure

Now we can demand a faster pace, since there is no more unnecessary circling of the cones going on, which means no loss of time or speed. Have a careful look at the beginning of the drill. After a feint, the players dribble around the start marker on the right-hand side and then turn into the slalom course.


Please take the description of the drill’s set-up from the starting drill.

The dribble path is a zigzag course. The starting marker is dribbled around on the right-hand side and then it’s off to the practice field. Alternating between the two, one cone and one inner marker are used as slalom poles. The cones are always dribbled around on the side that is facing away from the practice field. Constantly changing foot and the direction of dribbling are a challenge for players; therefore, start with a moderate pace and then speed players up to a fast dribble.


- Be sure to conduct a competition
- The players don’t wait until their fellow players have circled the field, but start on the coach’s command.
- Go anti-clockwise
