Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured activity works on playing a long ball, receiving a long ball, dribbling toward goal, shooting, goalkeeping and fitness
Start with two small line of players on one sideline (one line with balls), 30-40 yards from goal.
Opposite them is another line of players. A keeper is in goal.
The reason for having both a passing line and a defending line, as opposed to having the passer defend is if the passer defends, there is an incentive to make a bad pass to make it easier to defend.
Another option is once the ball is played the passer joins the receiver and they play 2 v 1 to goal.
This is a fun activity that works on a lot of aspects of passing, receiving, dribbling, defending, shooting and goalkeeping.
Have a great day!
