Soccer drill procedure

What happens in this drill when all of the players start at the same time? I hope things will turn out well, but I can’t guarantee it. Depending on the age of the players, I have experienced different results. Some players start to panic.

Only do this variation if your players are capable of turns and feints. You can find ideas on these on Soccerpilot under “tricks”.


The star is made up of three teams. In the animation you can see a team yellow, black and blue.

The first players of every partial group dribble to the center of the star and conduct a turn or a feint. They then move back to their starting group. Continuously increase the pace.
