Soccer Drill Demonstration


Two players with a ball each stand in a 10x10 square.

Player 1 has 1 minute to tag player 2 as many times as possible on the shoulder. You must maintain possession of the ball at all times; if player 2's ball leaves the square then player 1 is awarded a tag. After every tag the tagger must retire to a corner. After 1 minute, player 2 tries to beat player 1's score.

Coaching points

Get players to change speed and keep the ball moving. It is important for the attacker to keep changing direction to unbalance the defender.
