Team Reaction Dribbling Drill, Soccer Dribbling Drill

This is a fun soccer dribbling drill that focuses on dribbling and reacting to teammates.


Drill Setup

Create a small grid approximately 20X20 yard grid. From each of the four corners, place a flag about 7-10 yards from the corner cone. Each player should have a ball inside the grid.

Drill Instructions

Instruct the players to dribble inside the grid using the entire grid. When the coach calls out a player’s name, that player picks which of the four flags they want to dribble around and quickly dribbles around that flag. The entire team must also dribble with speed around the same flag as quickly as possible. The last player back into the grid must do push-ups or sit-ups.
