Soccer drill procedure
We already had the ball swap, but there’s another way. Since the sequence develops against the direction of running, concentration is a must, or else balls will get lost. Always think about increasing the pace once the drill has been mastered.
The two first players from each group dribble through the short slalom. When they meet in the center of the practice field, they swap balls using short passes. The ball shouldn’t just be handed over, pay attention to the passing. The players then deal with the received ball and return to their group.
- The left group dribbles and passes only with their left feet, the right group dribbles and passes only with their right feet and vice versa.
- The ball should sit for a short period before being passed.
Soccer coach tips
- Pay attention that the ball is received well – with little loss of pace.
- Adjust the speed so that the players meet in the middle
