Soccer drill procedure

No huge differences between this and the introductory drill. Now, though, we have marked out another square in the centre of the drill area. One-on-one play only takes place here, which allows the ball receiver to better prepare for one-on-one play. This prevents the drill from being interrupted when the ball is received, and enables the speed of the one-on-one play to be increased.


Mark out another square in the drill area, as shown in the animation. The drill is carried out in the same way as the introductory drill.


- Coach gives signal after one-on-one play lasts for a certain length of time; the attacker then loses the ball.

Soccer coach tips

- Encourage players to break through quickly after manoeuvres
- Correct errors individually
