Soccer Drills

Tunnel Tag

Setup

Make a grid approximately 20x20 yards. Each player should begin with a ball but one. The one without the ball is the tagger. This is a timed activity so have a watch available.

Instructions

Players will dribble around in the grid the tagger will come in and try to tag players while they are dribbling. If a player gets tag they are to pick their ball up in their hands and spread their legs apart (a tunnel) in a stationary stance (players with the red X’s on them in the diagram). The frozen players may be freed when another player dribbles or passes a ball through the tunnel.

Play for one minute then change the tagger.
