Soccer Drill Demonstration


This fun passing and moving game can be explained in two words - Football Rugby.

In order to score a point players must stop the ball in the opposition's try area.

To begin with, to encourage passing and moving, this should be done by passing the ball to another player who controls and stops the ball inside the area.

Coaching points

To make the game more challenging and to encourage players to dribble with the ball forwards you can instill the backwards only pass rule.

Like in rugby players can only pass the ball backwards - any ball passed forwards will result in a free-kick being awarded to the other side, so players will have to create space to receive a pass and dribble into the try zone.


As the game progresses you can change the rules so that players are now allowed to 'go it alone' and dribble the ball into the area to score a try if they are able to do so.
