Soccer drill procedure

The drill instructions in our last animation should inspire you. We have compiled a list with a few more variations a little farther down.

Animation explanation:

-Sidesteps – Changing the line of sight once.
- Stepping: short, fast steps
- Feint a header
- Lift the knees when running
- Kick your heels
- Lunges to the left and right
- Alternate between running and pausing
- Alternate between running forwards and backwards


Form two rows. The players in the row on the left each have a ball. After dribbling for a short amount of time, the player passes the ball to the first player on the opposite row. This player then dribbles the ball to the other side. The passer also runs to the other side, while completing different tasks. The coach is in charge of distributing these tasks.


- Do the drill with only one ball; the player on the right side does not dribble, but passes and then completes additional tasks.
