Dribble and avoid the pass soccer warm up drill

Use this soccer warm-up drill to get your young players practising their dribbling skills.

Set up the warm-up drill

Split your players into two teams. One team acts as the dribblers and each of them has a ball inside the area. Give the other team three balls and spread them around the outside. These players are the passers.

Soccer coaching tips to run the warm-up

  • The dribblers must be on the move constantly and try to avoid being hit by a pass from the outside players.
  • If one of the dribbling players is hit by a pass, he is out of the game.
  • The passing players must pass below knee height or the pass does not count.

Scoring can take place in two ways:

  • The last player dribbling is the winner.
  • The team that eliminates the dribblers the quickest wins.

Make sure the passes are not shots and are made with the inside of the foot only.
