Description and Graphics

This soccer drill is all about the soccer specific movements, technical skills and cooperation between players. Players movements depend on the team-mates' action. 3 different progressions can be seen. (1-2; 3-4; 5-6) Player A starts the exercise with a short dribbling. That means Player B should move farther on and open space to the pass. Player B has to make a dicision: either turning with the ball to the directon of the attack or lay the ball back to Player A. If Player B receives the ball and dribbles towards Player C, it is a sign for Player C. Player C has to open space to the pass. After a short and quick dribbling and eye contact Player B passes the ball to Player C. Player C receives the ball behind the stick and dribbles at speed towards the wide stick. He makes a feint at the stick and shoots. Players change their positions. In case Player B lays the ball back (3) to Player A: after the first pass (2) Player C has to open space at the moment of the lay back (3) and if he decides to accelerate into the front of the stick Player C has to pass the ball direct to him with one touch. Player C dribbles at speed towards the middle positioned stick. In front of the stick he makes a feint and shoots on goal.
