Soccer drill procedure

It is not sorcery, but just clever soccer that allows anentirely realisticsmooth drill sequence.

Do not commit the mistake and start the drill straight away from both sides at the same time, as shown in our animation. Follow the sequence and observe both players at the top of the animation. It becomes simpler now and the pass sequences can be recognized well. The players must learn to adjust to different situations. Avoiding, delaying the pass and exact forward passes - you will be forced to pay attention.


I shall describe the drill with the lower pair of players, the sequence is identical on the other side. Four ball distributors stand at the center, with their backs facing each other.

The player to the left, who has a ball, begins. After short dribbling, he passes the ball to the first ball distributor, who passes exactly along the running course of the player on the right side. Once again short dribbling followed by the pass to the second ball distributor. He passes the ball to the left along the running course of the left player. Short dribbling and a diagonal pass to the right player on the opposite side. That's it! Actually, very simple.


- Only direct passing!
- Avoid the last diagonal pass, each pair has a ball
