Football Coaching Drill on Dribbling in and around the area
Mike Trusson August 14, 2012
This is a football coaching drill designed using Coaches Chalkboard on improving dribbling in and around the penalty area. Players will need to create space in which to receive the ball. To receive the ball out of their feet so that they are facing the opposition goal. Get their head up to see what their options are and then look to use dribbling tricks, skills and ball manipulation and to move the ball and their body past opponents. Finally, there needs to be a positive end result after the dribble of a shot or a cross.
