Soccer drill procedure

One video = three variations!

The simplest way to build this drill would be having a centre circle at your disposal. In order to avoid shortcuts, the circle can be closed further by ground markings. The set-up is clear from the graphics, and I will not explain it further.


Upon the starting signal, the players dribble along the circle, with one group dribbling around the circle from the left, and the other from the right. At the cone goals, the players each pull into the circle's center. Once there, they are to kick the ball through the cone goal. If successful, the next player of the respective group may start. If the cone goal is missed, the next player must count to five before he is allowed to start.

It does not matter from where the ball is kicked through the cone goal, provided the player is within the circle. The longer the distance, the sooner the next player can start but the risk of a miss is greater, of course.


- The cone goal at the center must be dribbled through
- Do not forget competition
