Soccer Drill Demonstration


A fun game for all - all players are numbered (in the animation from 1-4).

The coach plays a pass straight down the middle of the two lines of players. As soon as they have made this pass they must call out a number.

The players whose number has been called out must sprint to try and win the ball. The player who is first to the ball can then turn and dribble to their side.

The team with the most balls at the end of the drill is the winner.

Coaching points

Speed of reaction and a winning instinct is essential for winning this game.

You can progress the drill by calling out 2 numbers and creating a 2 vs 2 where players must win the ball and work it back to their side without being dispossessed by the other pair.
