Football Drill Demonstration


Players work in groups of 4-6 with one player wearing a bib and acting as a defender, the others work together to maintain possession, passing the ball between themselves and keeping it out of the defenders reach. The players are encouraged to use as little touches as possible keeping the ball moving quickly making it hard for the defender to intercept. Once the defender touches the ball he swaps bibs and roles with the player who lost the ball and the game continues.

Coaching points

Players are encouraged to:

-Keep the ball on the ground

-Move to create angles for the pass

-Use less than 3 touches

If players find it too easy to keep possesion then you can:

-Reduce the size of the playing area

-Limit players to one touch

-Add more defenders
