Kick a Crossed Ball

Two soccer skills that require practice to learn are kicking a ball coming from the side (e.g., a crossed ball) and kicking a moving ball sideways. The "Kick A Crossed Ball Game" and "Run To The Ball & Shoot With Side Of Foot" games are easy to set up and are time-efficient. If you wish, you can run them as soccer drills or make them soccer games by having players keep score. If you have more than 6 players, consider setting up 2 goals so there is less standing around and more ball otuches for each player.
