Soccer Drill Demonstration
Station one player in each grid in the crab postion (belly up, on hands and feet). Six players start on one end line. Station discs at the opposite end line.
The standing players must dribble across the area without being tackled by the crab players who are trying to kick the balls out of the area. If a ball is kicked out, the player stays in the game and tries to help his teammates get the other balls across. The object of the game is to see how many times the players can dribble across the area until no soccer balls are left. Count how many successful trips players make. Repeat and rotate.
Push the ball 2-3 feet in front of you between touches. When approaching a defender, push the ball into an open space to his side and accelerate into the space.
If you have lost your ball, get in a space where a teammate might pass to you.
Two ways to beat a defender: pass or dribble.
