  2. Two players start on the corner cone opposite each other.
  3. One player starts in the center of the grid.

Soccer Drill Instructions

  1. Player 1 starts the play by playing a ball into the central player (Player 2).
  2. Player 1 moves to the cone to his side that is placed 10 yards away.
  3. The central player (Player 2) plays a first time ball back to Player 1 while he is moving into space.
  4. After Player 2 returns the ball to player 1 he takes his place at the cone where play started (Player 1’s original starting position).
  5. Player 1 plays a long ball to Player 3 and moves into the center of the grid to become the new central player.
  6. Player 3 plays into Player 1 who returns the ball to player 3 at the cone placed 10 yards away.
  7. Player 1 now takes the starting position of Player 3 while Player 3 plays a long ball down to the starting position and Player 3 becomes the central player.
  8. The pattern is repeated.
