  2. Two players step into the middle of the circle.

Soccer Drill Instructions

  1. One of the two players in the middle should starts with the ball. This player is the attacker and the other player is the defender.
  2. The attacker's responsiblity is to pass to the supporting players on the outside of the circle in order to keep possession of the ball and move in order to receive the ball back from the outside player.
  3. If the defender wins the ball, this player becomes the attacker and their roles are switched.
  4. Let each player play for 1 minute and keep track of the number of passes.
