Soccer drill procedure

Not everyone will be able to trust that his team will manage this drill but one should not underestimate one's players either. Though the start is still easily manageable, things will become definitely difficult during the next drill. This unit was copied from a professional team, and the special thing is the player at the center. He really has to work hard and constantly adapt to new situations. The permanent turns demand a high degree of orientation abilities.


The two goals and their posts form the core of the drill. The drill is started on the right side, with a pass towards the "pass distributor". He makes the ball bounce off to the right or left, and the receiver of the pass immediately transfers it to the player in the left goal, who, in turn, makes the ball bounce off the pass distributor and offers himself for the return pass by running around the left post. After receiving the pass, he uses a long through pass to direct the ball to the team player who has started at the upper cone and who then dribbles into the starting group. The players switch over to the group to which they have transferred the passes, and only the pass distributor may remain on his post until the coach replaces him.


- Only direct passing game!
