Soccer / Ball Control / Defense

Dribbling Through Pirates

A fun soccer ball control drill for younger players learning to move with the soccer ball at their feet and face a live defender. Helps develop good ball control soccer skills and defensive reactions.

Players with ball are lined up on opposite sides of the defenders who are lined up in the middle. The players with balls try to cross through the wall of defenders without losing their ball while the defenders try to kick the balls away from attackers on each side of them. Everyone takes turns in each soccer position.
