Extreme Tag Soccer Game

Drill Objective:

The Extreme Tag soccer game is a fun soccer drill that focuses on young soccer players dribbling skills and aids in player awareness. It is a great drill that causes players to change directions quickly to find space to avoid being tagged. 

Drill Setup:

  1. Create a grid that is approximately 20X20 yards.
  2. The size of the grid can vary depending on the number of players.
  3. Each player should have a soccer ball.

Drill Instructions:

  1. Players dribble around in the grid trying to avoid a tag from the other players.
  2. The tag must be below the player's knee to receive credit for the tag.
  3. Each successful tag below the knee will result in a point being awarded to the tagging player.
  4. If the player gets tagged, a point is subtracted from their total.
  5. The first player to 5 wins that round.
  6. Play a couple of rounds depending on the length of time each game takes.

Drill Coaching Points:

  • Make sure players are dribbling with their head up
  • Instruct players to find open space.
  • Players will want to leave their ball when being chased, so make sure the players keep their ball in close control.
  • Make sure the kids have FUN!
