5v5 Soccer Dribbling Practice Game
This 5v5 soccer dribbling game is more of a realistic setting to help focus on improving dribbling skills.
Create a grid that is 30X40 yards.
Divide the players into two teams of 5 field players and 1 goalkeeper.
Create a goal on each goal line, or use two Pugg Goals on each end line.
Players play a 5v5 game with the restriction that the attacking player with the ball must first beat a defender before he can pass or shoot.
This restriction will encourage attackers to dribble and take on defenders.
Remove all of the restrictions and play a standard 5v5 game.

A 7v7 scrimmage is a great way to end most of your training sessions. The 7 vs 7 allows players to focus on team tactics in realistic training situations and respond to problems presented in the full-sided game.
