Soccer Drills- Moving Targets
Purpose: Warm Up Routine
No of Players: 2 Teams of 6-8 players.
Playing Area: Penalty box extended sideways to touchlines.
Duration: Up to 20 minutes.
Outline: One team tries to score points by hitting an opponent with the ball without losing possession. The other team tries to gain possession. One point is scored for every opponent hit.
Both teams are on the pitch together. Direct passing only. Dribbling is not permitted. The opposing team gets the ball after every shot missed,
- if the ball goes out of play
- if an opposing player gets the ball first from a throw in
- if player goes over the boundary line.
A player that has been hit can only rejoin the game only if one of his team mates regains the ball.
Possible Variations: Players that have been hit drop out and cannot rejoin. The game ends when all players have been eliminated.
Remarks: This exercise is particularly suitable for indoors and for warming up your team before training.
