Soccer drill procedure

Did you notice the difference in how the drill is carried out? The players in the centre now look in the other direction, because the ball will be passed to them from the other side. The groups get mixed together by this. Constant changing of sides, one new position after another: it’s not easy, because the exercise keeps being interrupted by mistakes. Give your players some time to become truly confident with the drill – patience is a virtue for soccer trainers.


The continuation of the drill corresponds to that in the introductory exercise. The players receive a pass from the other side of the field, before joining the group on the other side.


- Control the ball before making the goal shot
