Full Sided Game For Conditioning and Corner Kicks

By Lawrence Fine, Author of the FineSoccer Coaching Bible.

Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured is a full sided game emphasizing conditioning and corner kicks.

Start with a full sized field with keepers and each goal. Ideally you would play 11 v 11 but if you have less players use what you have. The only unusual thing is you want to have a few balls in each of the 4 corners.


This is a normal scrimmage with one major exception. Any time a ball goes out of play, the opposing team gets the ball for a corner kick. As an example, if the black team has the ball and inadvertently passes over the end line, the yellow team gets a corner kick from that side.

If that corner kick goes over the end line which would normally result in a goal kick for the black team, the players sprint to the other end and the black team takes the corner.

Besides having a LOT of running in this game, it also allows for the players to get accustomed to setting up for attacking corner kicks as well as defending them.

Have a great day!
