Vinland Valley Soccer Association

Soccer Drills

Gatekeepers

Setup

Mark two lines approximately 15-20 yards apart. These will be the shooting lines. Place 5 cones in the middle of the two lines and place a soccer ball on each of the cones in the middle. Divide your players into two teams and separate them on each of the shooting lines.

Instructions

Play begins when the coach yells fire. Players attempt to serve/shoot their ball (from behind their shooting line) to knock a ball off of a cone. The first team to knock three balls off wins a point. Four points wins a game. Players may go into their half of the grid or play area to retrieve soccer balls to serve/shoot again.
