Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Position 2 teams of 6 players in opposite corners of the same end line and number players on each team from 1 to 6.

Place a gate (2 cones, 3 yards apart) at the opposite end of the area to the goal. Position the coach as a goalkeeper in the goal.

The coach calls out a number from 1 to 6. The respective players from each team run with the ball following the directional arrow as shown in the diagram, to the gate at the end of the grid.

The first ball to cross through the gate is the ball that is used (the other one can be discarded).

The players then compete in a 1 vs 1 to get a shot on goal.

Coaching points

Keep your head up, looking at where you're going, not at the ball.

Strike the ball with the laces and follow through in the direction of the target.
