Soccer drill procedure

In order to ensure clarity, we have avoided showing any more variations in the animation. However, it is possible to start the process from both sides at the same time. Our players have been given different colors in order to make the sequence clearer.


Two players stand on the byline. The yellow player stands nearer to the goal than the red player. The red player has a ball.
The practice field for this sequence can go around the penalty area, depending on the players’ age group and skill level. We have limited the field with two markers in our animation. We have posted a black player on the left corner. Now we can start: the red player dribbles the ball somewhat diagonally into the practice area, towards the red marker. The yellow player runs behind the red player and the marker. There he can expect the pass from the red player and passes the ball straight to the other side of the area to the black player. In the meantime, player “Red” has run horizontally towards player “Black” and regains the ball there. After that, the ball is passed to the wing position, the black player takes the ball, dribbles to the goal line and flanks or passes the ball in front of the goal. That is where the yellow player has run into position and puts the ball past the goalkeeper.
After this move, player “Red” takes the position of “Black”. “Black” takes the position of “Yellow” and “Yellow” replaces “Red”.
