Soccer drill procedure

This drill has one catch. If the players do not pay attention to the way they are running, a group will tire out very quickly, then you will be missing players.

Therefore, players are challenged impose their stamp on this unit and for this they need to wisely decide on their paths. The smaller the groups to work on exercises, the more difficult the headwork is during warmups, hopefully that goes well for you.


A triangle is marked and placed centrally in the triangle a little cone. At each corner of the triangle, a group is placed. The positions should be occupied by at least two players at the start of the exercise. The player dribbles the ball in the direction of the cone always into the diagonally opposite group, never taken back on the same side. The players decide on their own after the pass which group they will join, you just cannot return to their starting group.

A special feature applies to the group at the top of our entertainment triangle. The players spent two passing lanes and it is different than in the other two groups.


- A number of balls in play in larger groups (difficult!)
- Different dribbling and passing techniques

Soccer coach tips
