Soccer Drill Demonstration


Create a halfway line in the area using discs. Store soccer balls behind each goal. Play 4 v 1 in each half with a goalkeeper.

The goalkeeper serves the ball to any of his teammates in his half. They must get a shot on the goal in the opposite field. The lone player in that area is a defender trying to block the shot. The lone player in the opposite area is the cherry picker, following in on the goalkeeper for rebounds. Repeat in the opposite direction.

Progression: Take away the halfway line and progress to a full field game of 6 v 6.
