Football Drill Demonstration

Description

1 ball per player. Players should perform fast footwork drills - either with the inside of the foot to inside of foot or toe tapping on top of the ball.

When the coach shouts out "Rats!", the players at the top of the diagram must attempt to chase the other players. The object of the game is for the player in pursuit to tag his opposing partner on the back of the shoulders before he reaches the end line. Players return to the middle discs after each attempt. Repeat and rotate directions.

The team in pursuit attempts to strike their ball to hit the opposing player on or below the knee.

Coaching points

Get the ball out of your feet quickly, cover the area quickly and use your laces to run with the ball; point your toes down.
