Soccer Drills

Soccer Ball Smash


Set up a large grid approximately 40X50 yards or play on the full or half field. Pair up each of the players and make sure each player has a ball. The two partners should stand near to each other inside the grid but spread away from other groups of players when starting this drill.


Instruct player 1 to pass his ball forward. After Player 1's ball stops moving, player 2 then passes their ball at player 1's ball in attempt to hit player 1's ball. If player 2 misses, then player 1 tries to hit player 2's ball from where it landed previously. Each time a player hits their opponents ball, they collect a point. The first player to 5 wins that match.
