Default OK soccer people of FTF....

I need some dribbling drills.

First practice tomorrow and I am starting with dribbling.

I have dribbling through gates 1v1

I need one or two more 1v1 or 1+1

And some small sided games.


Any help would be great.

What age group? How skilled are the kids?

This will sound stupid but you can never hurt them buy having them juggle for 5-10 minutes. It teaches them to have a good first touch which is required if you ever want to move the ball around the way good soccer should be played.

Another thing you might think about incorporating is how using different areas of your feet will affect how the ball travels. The inside of the first allows the most control and is the easiest to learn but doesn't offer much in the way of power and distance.

Here's a few drills I used,
1. Laps - dribble/pass ball while jogging
2. Circle - approx 10-12yrds in diameter, quick passing, 1 touch
3. Lines - opposing lines, quick pass, 1 touch
4. Lines - trap and go, quick pass, trap, dribble and pass

At all times the focus should be on control. Soccer is a game of control not booming kicks up and down the field.

One of the best things to teach them is to dribble a ball at all times. Another good technique to teach is to use their weak foot, this helps them balance their footwork.

You can intorduce dribbling allowing only the inside, outside of sole of the foot. Outside is a good tactic for sprint dribbling up the field, inside and sole of the foot are more controlled movements to set up passing, shooting or control in a small area.

Circle tag is a good dribbling game 1 v 1. Set up a circle or two, start one player going around the circle dribbleing the ball, wait about a quarter to a half the circle and send another player after her to take the ball. Gives the player with the ball a skill of dribbling in a turn while under pressure.

Cones set up in a row, preferably several rows. Keep players dribbling through the cones, touching the ball and sending it to themselves between two cones. At the end of the row of cones, turn and sprint back with the ball under control. Just keep having them go through the cones for several cycles. While waiting their turn they can work on juggling, or just quickley putting the ball back and forth between their own feet.

For a scrimmage, a small sided game with the goals being the width of whatever pitch you are using. To score the player with the ball has to touch it on both sides of the goal line before a defender can touch it.

Good luck and lines are death!

OK there is the first practice....

I try to not have lines. Because I remember standing in line and if your standing in line your not learning anything.

Looks good to me, tango.

I would make one alteration. Change your 3 touch rule from you must make 3 touches before passing to they can only touch the ball 3 times before passing. If the 3rd touch is not a pass they cannot touch it and if they do the other team gets the ball. They can use their body to shield the ball from the opposing team so their teammate can try to come and get it but they cannot touch it.

That change will do a couple of things.
1. It forces them to keep their heads up and know where their teammates are. (This is extremely hard to teach, it seems like some players just have it and others don't)
2. they have to think about their actions in advance, plan their attack so to speak.
3. It should force movement around the ball. IE...other players making runs to and away from the ball which will open up passing lanes and such.
4. If they do touch it 3 times and have to shield the ball they can learn how to do so correctly without drawing a foul. You don't want to teach obstruction(which is rarely called) but shielding is a good skill. You can later show them or ad in how to control the ball while shielding.


Just my $.02.

Tango...I coached at U10, U12 and U14 several years ago when my kids were younger. Your biggest enemy is boredom and frustration...mix it up and always have them learning without failing. It sinks in better when they enjoy it. Good luck and have fun...

My daughters coach last year did everything in lines and none of the girls behind the 1 one would pay attention. That is why I try to keep the lines out of it. No laps just one to warm up before the dynamic stretching and a small one at cool down.
