Soccer End Zone Game

The soccer end zone game is a great soccer drill that will help coaches focus on all aspects of attacking and defending in soccer. With incorporating end zones into the game it gives players a chance to learn to attack space behind the defense and allows defenders to learn how to deny space behind them.

Create a 50X30 yard grid with 5 yard end zones on each end of the field. Split the team into 2 evenly matched teams


A team scores a goal by getting the ball from one end zone (by passing or dribbling into the zone) and immediately attacking the end zone and gaining possession in the end zone on the opposite end. If the other team wins the ball before they are able to successfully gain possession in both end zones no point should be awarded.
