Small-sided soccer game to get players using their left and right foot

Game set up

  • Set up a player on the edge of the penalty area (2).

  • You, the soccer coach, stand to one side and add a line of players the other side (1).

  • Player 1 passes to player 2 who returns it so that player 1 can run into the penalty area and shoot with his left foot.

  • Player 2 then runs to receive a ball from the soccer (football) coach, and turns and dribbles into the penalty area to shoot with his right foot.

  • Player 1 takes the place of player 2 who goes to the back of the queue.
