Soccer drill procedure

A drill unit for passing and receiving the ball in indoor training. Long benches in the hall are an ideal tool.

The passes in this drill are always played against the benches. That only works when the benches are turned on their side.

Everything should happen very fast in the practice field, since the active players are swapped out every 10 to 15 seconds. This drill is also great as a competition.

Which player can manage the highest number of passes in the allotted time? The player must change the bench he’s passing to after every pass.


One player passes, as you can see in the animation, in a rectangle made of benches. At the coach’s signal, the person practicing swaps with the next player.

- A competitive aspect can be introduced
- Two or three players practice at the same time
