2v2 Quick Attacking, Soccer Drills


  1. Create a grid approximately 25X40 yards. This is a large field for 2v2, but this is intentional as it will create more breakaway situations and will encourage players to attack the space while going to goal.
  2. Place a small goal or Pugg goal on each end line.
  3. Split the team into 2 equal groups, one with an alternate jersey color.
  4. Assign each player a partner on his team. These players will continue to be teammates throughout the entire soccer drill.
  5. Assign each team a goal to defend.
  6. 2 players from each team step out to play 2v2. The remaining players should line up across their defensive end line with a large supply of balls.


  1. Play 2v2 inside the grid to the small goals.
  2. If a team gets scored on they step off and two new team members step on with the ball. They look to get a quick attack on the team that just scored.
  3. As a team scores a goal, they must quickly transition to stop the quick attack.
  4. The scoring team stays on the field and plays 2v2 until they get scored on.
  5. If the ball goes out of bounds, the ball restarts from a teammate on their end line. Players only switch after their group gets scored on.
  6. First team to 20 wins.
