Organisation

Cones are used to create an approximately 30x70 meters playing field.
Mark a defending area and two small squares in the middle, as shown.
Place several balls to one of the small squares.
Besides, there are two defending lines, where the defenders can act in the 2v1 situations.
12 - 15 field players take part in the exercise for the optimal execution, but the soccer drill can also work with less or more players.
Two teams are identified by different colours.
The players work in groups of three within the teams and they change their positions after each action.
The roles of teams are changed after determined actions.
