Soccer drill set-up tips
This soccer drill involves a series of sprints over ten yards. It is called "See, hear, feel."
Line up two rows of players, ten yards away with a gap of about a yard between the rows. Mark the 10 yards with a cone the players have to touch.
The players are going to react to you in three ways:
Sprint 1 - visual
The players wait for you to drop a ball and then they sprint.
Sprint 2 - audio
The players wait for your call or whistle and then they sprint.
Sprint 3 - touch
The coach stands behind the players. The players wait for you to tap them on the shoulder, then they sprint.
