Football Drill Demonstration


Drill Setup:

This drill will require the attacking third of the field with a full size goal and a goalkeeper.

There should be a large supply of balls at the cone of player.

Split the team up evenly among each of the four cones positioned near midfield as seen in the diagram.

Drill Instructions:

Player 1 plays a firm ball into the corner of the field for player 3 to run onto.

As player 3 leaves his cone, player 4 also leaves his cone to put pressure on player 3, in attempt to deny the cross.

Player 2 also leaves to defend player 1 on the cross.

Player 3 crosses the ball into player 1 who attempts to finish on goal.

Rotate players so that they play both offense and defense on all of the spots.
