Soccer drill procedure

We will challenge you and your team with this drill. The distances between the individual positions in the animation are very short. The distance of the right and left markings can range throughout almost the entire field width, therefore the path ways and pass ways become even more difficult than it is visible here. Study the progression diligently and take more notes rather than less.

The entry may be easier if you omit the median position and the corresponding pass, because then you can recognize a simple circle.


First, regarding the layout: A small cone goal is erected in the center of the drill field. As the animation shows, a position is marked on the right side and on the left side. We positioned another cone above and below. Two players are positioned at each position. For each player facing the running direction, a ball is added left and right. Concentrate on the progression to the left side of the animation. The player carrying the ball passes to the player outside of the lower cone goal and then runs to the position located in the drill center. The pass receiver drags the ball to right, past the cone goal and then to the left in order to pass the offering player into the drill center. He the proceeds past the cone goal on the right immediately, receives the return pass and passes to the waiting player on the right side, whose position he will take later. The pass receiver turns with the ball and begins the analog drill progression on the opposite side.

These run- and pass ways are implemented simultaneously on both drill sides, which forms a circulation.
