Soccer drill procedure

The beginning of the practice could also be interpreted as ball coordination training. Short slalom dribbling and then comes the tricky ball exchange. The exchange will only work with a lot of involvement and good sense of direction. This drill will not run smoothly every time.


The first two players of a group start with a ball in a short (!) slalom dribbling. Then they align themselves to shoot the balls at the goal.


- Different goal shot, passing and dribbling techniques

Soccer coach tips
