Football Drill Demonstration


Equipment: Marked area appropriate size for age, 8 cones, 2 ball between 4 players

Organisation: Players set up as shown in the video and diagram. One player serves the ball to team mate who must head the ball up back to server. 5 headers in the air (defensive) and 5 headers downwards (attacking). Younger players maybe scared to head the ball so to start use a smaller softer ball and only a short distance between players.


Increase / decrease the distance between players
Server can move left or right so the header must be directed.
