Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Both players start on their knees with one player feeding an accurate throw for the other player to attack.

It is best to begin practising this drill on knees and progress to the standing up position when players feel more confident.

Coaching points

Make sure the header is driven into the hands of their partner and not looped into the air like with a defensive header.

Progression

See how many consecutive headers can be completed without the ball touching the floor.
