1v1 Penetration Drill

By Lawrence Fine, Author of the FineSoccer Coaching Bible.

Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured activity works on 1 v 1 penetration

Start with a 30 x 30 grid with two teams of threes. There is a player from each team in diagonal corners and a 1 v 1 in the middle. There is one ball


In this example the yellow team starts on offense. The player in the corner with the ball starts by passing to the player in the middle


The player tries to pass the ball to his teammate on the opposite corner.


If he successfully does this, his team gets a point. He then changes directions and tries to receive a pass from that player and go back to the original corner.

If the defender wins the ball, he plays the ball to either of his teammates and play continues with him on offense

The players stay in the middle for 2 minutes and then rotate out with a player in the corner. The team with the most points at the end of the 6 minute game wins.

Have a great day!
