1v1 to Multiple Goals (Dribbling)

Drill Objective:

This soccer drill is a great drill for focusing on teaching players attacking skills such as taking on their opponent or learning to attack space. Defensively it will teach players the responsibility of man marking.

Drill Setup:

  1. Create a 40X40 grid.
  2. Split your team into pairs with one ball per pair.
  3. Randomly set up small windows (approx 2-3 yards wide) for each pair, with training sticks, flags, or disc cones within the grid.
  4. Assign a pair of players per window.
  5. Each pair should begin at their window.

Drill Instructions:

  1. Each team plays one vs. one using their goal only.
  2. Award a point each time dribbling across the goal line.
  3. Players can score from either side of their own goal.
  4. Players play 1 to 2-minute games and rotate players.

Drill Coaching Points:

Attacking: Head up and aware of other players, change of direction, close control, and change of pace

Defending: Bent Knees, aware of attacker, tracking attackers movement and protecting the goal

Drill Variations

  • Open it up where each pair can score on any of the other goals. They are still paired up with only their partner and should not interfere with any other pairs going on.
