Football Drill Demonstration


Set up a playing area, divided into three equal sized playing areas. Players cannot enter another zone.

To begin with play 6 attackers (3 in both ends) v 1 defender in the middle.

The aim for the attackers is to use good passing movement to create space for the pass into the opposite zone.

Coaching points

Players cannot dribble with the ball, all movement must be made off the ball.

The defending player can close down the attackers right down to the line (they cannot cross this line though).

The size of the zones can be adjusted to make this drill easier/harder.

The coach can introduce a two touch rule to make things harder for the attackers.

Coach can add another defender into the middle zone.
