Football Drill Demonstration


Split your players into two equal teams and have them wait on the sideline opposite the coach who is standing with the ball in hand. Give players on each team a number from 1-5 (higher number if you have more players).

The coach then calls out a set of numbers. The players with these corresponding numbers must react to the call and run onto the pitch.

The coach kicks the ball into play and the two teams compete to score.

Coaching points

If no goal has been scored within one minute all players go off and coach calls out a different set of numbers.

The coach can vary the amount of numbers called each time.

The ball should be played on the floor as much as possible.

If players start shooting from too far out impose a maximum shooting distance (i.e. 1 meter from the goal.)
