Soccer drill procedure
The previous sequence is continually repeated. The ball is passed at the end of the lane; the balls must be divided up accordingly.
This variation can also be conducted with one ball; this might be a good idea to start off the drill. It is better to practice with more balls, however, to add momentum to the drill.
Mark two lanes, as shown in the animation. A row of players stands on each side. There are plenty of balls on the one side of the drill, as can be seen on the right of the animation. The starting player dribbles through the lane. At the end of the path, the ball is passed to the other row, as can be seen in the animation. The player follows the ball and then joins the team on the other side. The receiver dribbles through the lane to the opposite row.
At this point, pass the ball to the other row. This means that the drill be repeated continually.
