Soccer drills for condition

  • Pairs of two
  • One of them rolls the ball and the other passes back.
  • the passer runs back and forth between a pilon and the place of passing
  • Challenge is to play as much passes as possible in 45 seconds.
  • The group is positioned in the four corners of the field.
  • A tagger with a party ribbon
  • On the signal, they cross the field in three directions of their choice:
  • the short side, the long side or diagonal.
  • This results in one, two or three points each time they return.
  • A tagger operates in the free space and obliges the tagged children to first go back to their corner before they may cross again.
  • How many points can you score in a set time?
  • The group is on one side behind hoops.
  • On the signal, the children steal objects on the other side one by one and put them in the hoops on their own side.
  • If they are caught by a tagger, they have to put the object back.
  • A tagger will be assigned from the group.
  • The game is played all over the field.
  • The group is on one side of the field.
  • On the sign the children cross over.
  • One tagger tries to tap as many children crossing as possible.
  • Variation
  • The children walk back and forth on a sign.
  • Back and forth without waiting for a sign.
  • The children are not free on the other side.
  • With two taggers
  • With boxes with one tagger in each box.
  • The children can be tagged in each box.
  • Who is not tagged on the way back and forth?
  • Or which group of taggers has tagged the most children?
  • The group is lined up on the short side of the field in a few relays. 
  • On a sign they all run to the other side at the same time and sit down as fast as possible in a random order.
  • Which line can sit down first?
  • Variation
  • Varying start and end positions.
  • Touching a line on the opposite side, returning and sitting in line again.
  • The whole group is lined up behind a line on the side of the field.
  • On a signal, they run over to the other side.
  • Variation Starting positions: 
    • squat, 
    • sitting on knees 
    • lying on the stomach or back,
    • sit with your back towards the running direction.
  • Put out a square.
  • Each corner has a colour (hat, jacket, ...).
  • When jogging randomly across the field, call out colour and then sprint to the corner. 
  • This is a good exercise for conditioning: 
  • The group has to stand in a row and you let them start dribbling slowly. 
  • As soon as the trainer blows his whistle, the last one of the row should run forwards. 
  • You do this until everyone has been there and then you let them run out of the round. 
  • Middle player speeds up to goal with ball at his foot and finishes on target
  • Returns to blue pilon (sprint), passes and gets the ball back from the player at the red pilon
  • Red takes the ball along the flank to the back line
  • Meanwhile the one that started goes back towards goal and asks the ball from other flank while running
  • Takes the ball on and finishes (outside the rectangle).
  • Right flank and attacker dive in the box and finish the cross coming from the left flank
