Soccer drill procedure

There are a variety of dribbling paths in the double square drill. As an example we have shown six such paths. We'll start with a simple drill, take a look at the animation to the right.

The setup of the cones is easy and it is recommended to mark off the inner and the outer squares with different colors. The lengths of the sides can vary, it depends on whether you want to emphasize the technical or physical aspect of the drill.


Take a look at the setup of the drill. Two groups of players are located at the left and right sides of the large square. The left group will work with the left pairs of outer and inner cones. Look at the dribbling path shown in the animation, then the drill will be quite clear.


- Two more groups may start from the other side of the outer square
- The left and right groups should switch sides afterward
- Different dribbling techniques
- A competitive aspect can be introduced
