Soccer drill procedure

A really fun drill should be included in every training session. This drill is simple, does not require a lot of setting up and when training is not going well it always manages to get things back on track. Of course, it is not just ‘fun’: it requires good reactions and tackling skills.


A player or the instructor holds the hand of the first player in the line. He squeezes their hand and this squeeze is passed along the line hand-to-hand to the last player. The last player in the line starts for the ball. He dribbles to the goal and the last player from the other group acts as a defender.


- The players stand behind one another and press shoulders
- Squeeze a hand on each line and then what happens?
- Two or three players should defend
