Football Drill Demonstration


Set up a square roughly 10m x 10m.

Have a few players at each corner.

In 2 of the corners (diagonal) a player starts with a ball. They run clockwise around the square, when they get halfway to the next corner they pass the ball to a player there.

In this way the ball continually is passed clockwise around the square.

Once each player has passed a few times switch to anti-clockwise.

  • Importance of force applied to the ball so that it arrives at the feet of the next person quickly but is easy for them to control.
  • Player receiving the ball should control it with the back foot to be half turned ready to run straight away
