Soccer Drill Demonstration
Two players with one ball per pair.
Player 1 and player 2 juggle to decide who starts with the ball. If player 1 wins, he/she begins with the ball and player 2 begins at a disadvantage (i.e. on one knee, on both knees etc.) Player 1 must dribble through as many gates as possible while player 2 must try to win possession of the ball and do the same. Each gate is worth one point. One circuit should last no more than 2 minutes.
Note: A player may not go through the same gate until they have been through another gate.
- Keep head up when dribbling.
- Keep changing direction using a variety of moves to unbalance the defender.
- Change pace as much as possible.
- Work hard to retain possession.
