Field set up with 4 pawns at 10 by 10 meters.

How to play:

There are 2 groups made. One group runs horizontally from left to right and the other group from bottom to top. When the other side is reached, the whistle must be blown and the group goes back.

Field setup:

4 x 4 pawns in a rectangle arrangement.

How to play:

Each player sprints from the square of cones to the square of cones on the other side. Once there, they head the ball in the opposite direction (either with the inside or outside foot).

Now they sprint to the other side again to send the ball in the other direction in that square as well with a cutting movement.

Rules of play:

  • The ball is not allowed to go outside the square of pawns.
  • You have to sprint back and forth twice before the next player can play.


Field position:

Line up 8 to 10 pawns in 2 rows next to each other.

How to play:

Each player tries to slalom through the cones. This must be done by hitting the ball with the inside and the outside of your football boot.


  • First, make sure the move is done with the inside and with the outside of the foot.
  • Play a game between 2 players: who is the fastest.
  • To also learn to turn quickly, take the same route back along the cones at the end.
  • The defenders (formation 1-2-2) try to prevent the attackers from scoring, by making the space as small as possible and conquering or blocking the ball at all costs. 
  • The defenders help each other by keeping the distance between them as small as possible.
  • The attackers (formation 4-2) try to make the field as large as possible in order to score a goal
  • After conquering the ball, the defenders can try to score in a small goal
  • The attackers can score in a big goal with a goalkeeper
  • When the ball goes out of the field, it is kicked back in where it went out. 

  • Building to create opportunities, scoring goals
  • Make the space to play as large as possible - width - depth
  • Think deep and play deep if possible
  • Keep the ball
  • Principle: Width play serves as preparation / introduction / depth pass
  • Optimal field utilization
