Soccer drill procedure
The players now understand the principals of this drill and we can therefore up the ante. Now, four players start at the same time, making things more confusing for the passer. He must now not only find his receiver, but also follow his path.
The passers now pass to the player who has started from the other group. The animation shows how this works and it is often impossible to find your teammate without lifting your head. This drill sequence is the same as the introductory exercise; we just start from both sides at the same time.
- The shot on goal should be made after bringing the ball under control
Soccer coach tips
- Make sure that players try and kick on target, if possible with the inside of their foot, since we’re practicing passes, not goal scoring.
