Soccer drill procedure
Now we really want to get to it. Your players can really show you what they can do. Good timing and dribbling, precise ball turnovers and then an exact pass back. Not more, but also not less; which is why it is important to be patient with your team. For this sequence to work, no problems should have appeared during the previous drills.
The two first players in each group now dribble through the short slalom. When they meet in the center, they swap balls with a turnover or a short pass. They then continue to dribble. As we can see in the animation, the ball is passed precisely to the other player shortly before they reach their goal. This is difficult; the sequence must be 100% familiar.
- 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.
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
