Soccer drill procedure
This drill is conducted starting from both sides at the same time, but not before the coach gives a signal. Double passes are then made and the attackers take their shots on goal at the same time. As said so many times, our tip: Start the exercise in slow motion, then players will understand the paths and shots more quickly. The process will become a team experience when players start to master it and only make direct passes.
We will place six cones between two goals. They then form two larger cone goals with the goal. Two players stand in the right cone goal without a ball. One group should be positioned on the left side next to each goal, they should have plenty of balls at their disposal. On the coach’s signal, the first players in the group pass to the players in the center, who in turn let the balls rebound. They then turn and run to the other side to receive a pass for a shot on goal. The shooters then join the goal group and the starting players cover the central positions.
- The players offer themselves for a goal on the other side of the opposite cone goal.
