Soccer drill procedure

Everything begins when the coach gives the call. Two players begin play at the same time. Who will be the first to score a goal? The winner gets two points, but the second player also gets the point if the goal is scored successfully. Use a competitive element to create competition and motivation in children’s training sessions.


On the coach’s signal, the starting players in two groups, who have positioned themselves on the goal line next to two miniature sets of goals, start moving. They dribble to the cone marker, keep dribbling around it, and then shoot at their respective goals. If a goal is scored successfully, the player whose ball was the first to cross the line receives two points. If the second player also successfully scores a goal, he also receives one point for his team.
