Three-part session teaching players to receive on the half-turn and break defensive lines. By DAVID PONCIA MORE
Small sided game for quick feet
If you are coaching quick feet in your soccer (football) training session, this is a good small-sided game to use at the end of the session to hammer home the skills and techniques you’ve been coaching. It is simple to set up and gives you the chance to see if what you’ve been coaching is having an effect.
You will find your young soccer players enjoy games like this, which is a positive way to send them home after training knowing they are itching for your next soccer coaching session.
