Soccer Drill Demonstration

Description

Set up 3 gates on each side as shown.

The blue team run through the blue gates and the red team run through the red gates.

Players run with the ball through all the gates, round the last cone and then bring the ball back.

The first player to get back wins a point for their team.

Coaching points

Look for good close control when near the gates.

Allow players to enter/exit the gates how they like (freedom of expression/creativity).

Look for bigger touches in between the gates.

Are your players getting the ball out of their feet and accelerating away after turning through the gate.

Variations:

Manipulate the distance between cones depending on the type of fitness work you want to achieve from your team.

You might also like to insert a section in the middle where the players have to perform some exercises (Such as press ups, star jumps, sit ups etc) before passing the ball off to the next person (however this may slow the drill if you are doing a race).
