Kids Soccer Games - The Greeting Game
This drill is intended for younger players from U-4 to U-8, and gets the players moving, greeting each other, and a building block to dribbling.
Build a grid that is 15X20 using cones.
Each of the players is inside the grid with a soccer ball.
All the players run around randomly without balls, inside the grid.
The coach calls out various types of greetings, which each player then has to carry out with others:
Slap high fives (one hand)
Slap high fives (both hands)
Stand shoulder to shoulder
Stand back to back, etc.
Add soccer balls, and perform the same activities as above.

When dribbling, keep the ball close and don't run into other players.
