Soccer drill procedure

A defender attempts to disrupt the proceedings. Attackers should take advantage of speed, and try to go right up to the goal shot, where the defender will hardly have any chance at all.


The players start at the same time, and a defender is introduced into the game. The red player sprints to the right or the left, past the black player. He receives the pass, and shoots at the goal from a sprinting position. The defending player attempts to block the goal shot.
