Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Stand next to the middle cone. Sprint forwards 10 metres to the first cone, turning sharply as you reach it, before sprinting 20 metres to the far cone. Sprint back 20 metres to the second cone and finish by running past the start cone.

Players should cover 60 metres in total. Complete 10 full shuttles, with 30 seconds rest between each run.

Coaching points

Drill is used to help boost acceleration so players can close down opponents or beat a defender to a loose ball. The aggressive changes of direction will overload the hamstrings, glutes, quads and calves. This will strngthen muscles and tendons required for football.
