Soccer Drill Demonstration


Players have a ball each and must try to perform two keepy ups, dropping the ball from waist height and then kicking the ball once with each foot. The second kick should be targeted back into their hands with the lower laces part of their boot.

Practice with a variety of combinations:

  1. Right then left foot
  2. Left then right foot
  3. Left and left foot
  4. Right and right foot

Coaching points

There should be a slight back spin on the ball on both kick which will help the ball to come back to the player and avoid the ball running away from them.

Keep practising the double keep up until players are able to consistently perform this skill on the spot.

Being able to perform this skill with improve players' touch and confidence on the ball.


Try to do more keepy ups following a pattern (left-right-left-right). Players should ensure they are in control when performing this skill and not simply chasing the ball around!
