Soccer Drills

Clean Up the Yard


In a 20x20 grid place two goals (sheds) on each end line. Place as many balls as possible within a circle of cones within the middle of the grid. Two players (Mess Makers) will be making the yard a mess while the rest of the players (Cleaners) will be cleaning it up.


Players must start on the edge of the grid. Play begins when the coach yells Clean Up the Yard! Cleaners take balls from the middle and try to score in either goal until all the balls have been scored. Mess Makers use their feet to take the balls out of the goals (sheds) and back to the middle circle. Coaches can help put balls back in play that leave the grid. Games last 2 minutes.
