This soccer drill builds off of the previous two soccer drills. It is set up the exact same way but this time two players will be run to the circle. The defensive player will make a pass to wither player in the air. The player that receives the ball will have to gain control under pressure from the defender and either make a pass or take a shot.
This soccer drill is run the same way as the previous drill. The objective is for players to receive the ball within two touches and release a shot on net. In this variation they have to do it while under pressure from the player that made the pass.
Sometimes game situations need to be simulated by creating some urgency. This soccer drill creates a sense of urgency on by adding backside pressure as the two offensive players are on a 2 on 1 break. Set up the drill as shown in the diagram. Designate a player or coach to make the first pass, the passer can pass to either offensive player.
The 3 on 1 Rescue soccer drill focuses on ball possession. There are two teams of 6 players and one rescue player (or coach). The field is set up as shown in the diagram. The rescue player must stay in the rescue zone. To start, the offensive team will have three players on each side against the defending team's one player. The rescue player starts with the ball and passes to one of the players on the offensive team. The offensive team tries to complete as many passes in a row as possible. They may use the rescue player at any time.
