Soccer Drills for Kids

Players move freely with a 1:2 ball to player ratio. Players with the ball will play another player a pass over 15 yards, close the space, and defend the grass immediately behind them from the dribble.

If one player succeeds on the dribble, he moves on with the ball; if the defender wins the ball, he moves on with the ball.

The objectives of this drills are:

To improve individual defending as it pertains to pressuring the ball, breaking down into defensive stance, and winning the ball.
