Soccer / Attacking / Defense

Reaction Sprint and 1v1

In this one-on-one attacking soccer drill, two soccer players race for a loose soccer ball. The winner of the possession goes on offense, the other soccer player becomes the defender.

X and O face goal and jog backwards away from ball.

When X changes direction and sprints to ball, O reacts and also sprints to ball.

Now X and O play 1v1 on net.

After 1v1, X goes to line of O's waiting and O behind X's.

Note: Set up two or three fields to have no more than 8 players in a group.
