Key soccer coaching tip: Tell your players they have to move left and right to get the ball past the defender in this drill.

 

A quick soccer warm up drill

If you want a quick way to warm up your players and improve basic ball control skills, this is one of the best drills to choose. This is a good drill to use whether your team is about to start their soccer coaching session or a match. You can set this up while you are putting up the nets or sorting out the team.

How to do it

  1. Using three cones, and four players, set up a triangle about 4m x4m x4m.
  2. One defender stands inside the triangle and he must intercept the ball to get out of the triangle.
  3. Three attackers on the sides of the triangle must keep passing the ball by feinting the pass or looking one way and passing the other – something to fool the defender.
  4. If they lose the ball, the players go inside the triangle.

TRY AN ALTERNATIVE WHERE THE PLAYER IN THE MIDDLE NEEDS TWO INTERCEPTIONS TO SCORE A POINT AND THE OUTSIDE PLAYERS NEED FOUR CONSECUTIVE PASSES TO SCORE. TIME THE DRILL FOR FIVE MINUTES.
