Soccer Drills

4 Goal Knockout


In a grid of approximately 20x20 yards place two goals on each endline opposite one another. Every player but two will have a ball. The two who don’t are the Knockout Kings or Queens.


The players dribble around in the grid trying to keep it away from the defenders or Knockout Kings. If a defender steals a ball they attempt to finish it in any of the four goals. If a player has their ball stolen and scored then they are out. If a player’s ball leaves the grid more than twice (either by dribbling or by a defender) then they are out of the competition. The last two with possession of their ball will become Knockout Kings or Queens.
