Soccer drills for all skills

  • Player 1 and Player 2 start dribbling at the same time. 
  • At the end they pass through pawns to the other side. 
  • The next player receives the ball and starts dribbling.
  • Attackers can score in a big goal
  • Defenders must intercept the ball ( prevention of goals)
  • The middle player of the attackers starts with the ball and plays the ball to one side
  • On the side, the outside player plays one-on-one with the defender, a cross follows with the center attacker and the outside player from the other side closing in on the goal.
  • If the defenders get rid of the ball, the attackers turn and a new attacker plays the ball to the other side.
  • When the defenders have intercepted the ball three times, the defenders switch between them


  • Player 1 passes the ball to player 2. 
  • Player 2 dribbles along the pylons, passes at the end to player 3. 
  • Player 3 bounces the ball back to player 2, player 2 finishes. 
  • Player 3 fetches the ball, 
  • Runs over to stand on the spot of Player 1
  • Player 1 to Player 2, 
  • Player 2 to Player 3. 
  • Player 1 does exercises on the ladder
  • At the end of the ladder is a ball
  • With the ball he dribbles along pylons that are wide spread (conditioning)
  • At the last pylon he shoots at a small goal
  • Get your own ball, shoot back to the end of the ladder
  • If player 1 is at the end of the ladder, player 2 can begin 
  • Scoring by dribbling across the goal line
  • Playing out the situation through positional play
  • Ball handling in position play
  • Act fast, look for a pass directly
  • Overview of the situations for moving the game and choosing the moment and direction of the passing action
  • Cutting off the opponent's pass and shielding the ball
  • Coaching defenders to cut off the line of the pass
  • Defenders coach on giving back coverage (standing diagonally behind each other)
  • Player 1 starts dribbling along 5 hats
  • Then plays player 2 who waits by hat
  • Player 2 bounces the ball back on player 1
  • Player 1 finishes. 
  • Player 2 fetches ball and joins the back of the line
  • Player 1 runs to the pylon to bounce the ball back
  • Dribble in large square
  • Make small squares on the outside corners
  • Name the small squares
  • When calling the name, everyone must dribble to that square
  • Eventually you can work with a knockout system, so that the last 2 get eliminated. 

2 teams

  • The players have to play football 4 against 2 and must have replayed at least 3 times in the attack and a maximum of 10 times before scoring.
  • When a ball is taken off/ touched/ crosses the line or a score is scored, there must be a switch between attacking and defending.  
  • When there is no overplay, no scoring is allowed. 
  • The idea is to be able to play a game in corona time.
  • The idea comes from a table soccer game
  • Each player has his own space they are not allowed to leave.
  • By passing, the ball can be brought to the other player
  • Defense is allowed as long as it remains in his/her own discipline.
  • The field can be adjusted to the number of players

Further goals:

  • Passing
  • Positioning game
  • Shooting Distance

  • The exercise can be made more difficult by making the game faster
  • By only hitting the ball 2 or 3 times and playing quickly
  • After all, during a match you don't have that much time either
