Soccer drill procedure

Slalomdribbling? The players each dribble twice through the yellow and the red cone marker gates before making the goal shot. The dribbling path needs to be followed correctly so that the player leaves the dribble course in the direction of the goal. If the players don’t concentrate properly, this drill won’t work. The complicated dribble course makes it so there is not much time left over to concentrate on the goal shot – but then that’s the idea of the drill.


The players dribble around the cone markers. Please see the animation for the exact set-up instructions. Alternate dribbling through red and yellow markers. Afterwards, a goal shot can be made.
