Double HeadingNext exercise

Soccer drill procedure

Even with the head you can develop a feeling for the ball. Your players will love this drill. In practice, a successful double heading is a great experience and it will work, as soon as the players have the hang on it.


The ball is passed accurately. The player heads the ball slightly vertical upwards. The ball ideally flies back into the arms of the thrower.


- Competition! Which pair manages the highest amount of double headings in a row without letting the ball touch the floor?
- Widen the distance between the players
- Speed up
- Jumping and heading

Soccer coach tips

- Do not let the ball fly to high during the first heading
