Attack the cone Dribbling Skills

Attack the cone dribbling skills
Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The emphasis of this soccer drill is on dribbling. Set up five cones as shown in the diagram to form a 15 x 15 yard square with one cone in the middle. There is a player at each cone with a ball (except the cone in the middle). In the first sequence, the players dribble the ball up to the cone and retreat back to their original position. The goal is to maintain possession of the ball the entire time.  Each time players should push themselves to go a little bit faster.  In this first sequence all four players can go at the same time. In the second sequence only the two players opposite of each other go at the same time.  This time they do a move on the cone and keep going to the opposite cone.  Players need to keep their heads up and read the other player to avoid collisions.
