Soccer drill procedure

The animation shows two players on the practice field. It is possible to also put more than one pair on the start position, who then alternate constantly. Good experience for running behind the ball in soccer.


The red player has a ball and passes it. Player “black” starts moving into the practice field and stops after receiving the ball. “Red” should now run behind “black” and then – after taking his new position – receive a pass. The player from the field also runs to the other side, so that the exercise can start over.
