Soccer Drill Demonstration


Station 1 player on each end line and a lone defender in the middle of the area. Repeat in 3 other areas for a total of 12 players. The outer players each have a ball.

The object of the game is for the outer players to get over the middle line without losing the ball to the middle player. The middle player can only move along the line between the cones. If the defender wins the ball, then the attacking player and defender change places and roles. Keep score of how many times a player can get over the line without losing the ball.

Coaching points

Look for an opportunity to get over the line while the defender is tackling the other dribbler.

Use a scissors and inside out move to beat the defender.


Add a progression that allows defenders to move off the middle line.
