Soccer training – Dribbling - Exercise:

Soccer drill procedure

Please take a look at the video which accompanies the exercise, where we have increased the practice area. Make the dribbling paths as narrow as possible, so as to force the players to use their soles when pulling the ball around the cone marker. This exercise is characterised by constant changes in direction, and we want to see an accurate pass into the goal at the end of it.


Use the same dribbling path as shown in the exercise. An extension, like the one shown in the video, allows two groups to compete.


- Use the extension described in the video to add a competitive element

Soccer coach tips

- Always train using both legs!
