Monkey in the Middle
A fun passing soccer drill that teaches younger players how to make quick decisions, move with the ball and develop a good first touch. Defenders work up a good sweat and learn not to over commit. The older the player, the bigger the triangle.
- Groups form a triangle with one monkey in the middle.
- Triangle moves from one end of the field to the other, no
- If the monkey gets the ball the triangle restarts; if the triangle makes it down the field the monkey position rotates to another player in the group.
- To make this drill work, the players have to talk and move to space to receive a pass.
