Soccer Drill Demonstration


Players start facing each other and hands on their heads, with six cones of different colours between them.

Coach calls out a colour, and the players must react quickly to grab that colour of cone.

Coaching points

Good for improving players reactions, something that is particularly important for goalkeepers.


Change the game so that rather than just grabbing the cone, the player has to put it on his head.

Call more than one colour, so the players have to react to grab more than one cone.
