Dribbling at the Cone Youth Soccer Dribbling Drill
The Dribbling at the Cone youth soccer dribbling drill is a good soccer drill for young soccer players to learn to dribble without opposition.
Create a grid that is 20X10 yards.
Place a 9" cone in the middle of the grid.
Two players align themselves on one sideline with a ball.
The other player should align themselves on the other sidelines with the cone in the middle.
This grid will be for three players, so add more 9" cones in the area as needed depending on the number of players.
The first person in the group of 2 will start with the ball.
This player will dribble at the cone, change the direction of the ball as he makes a move (fake) around the cone.
After moving past the cone, the player should increase his speed to finish at the other side of the grid.
He then lays the ball off to the other player who performs the same fake on the cone.
Play continues until the coach introduces a new faint.
Here are some moves to perform are:
hard step, drop shoulder and change direction
Replace the cone with a defender.
