Soccer drill procedure

The attacking players try to dribble through the traffic cone goal from the left or right. They start at the same time, so the defender can only block one side. Who manages the breakthrough? It is easier if both attacking players lure the defender to each of the side ends of the goal. Then there is enough space for breaking through on the other side.


- For each blocked attack, the defender gets one point

Soccer coach tips

- Additional praise, if the defender stops both attacking players!
- Sole dribbling!
- Demand feints!
