Soccer warm up drill for running and moving with the ball

This soccer drill is a warm-up exercise, but you can also try it to get your players used to running and moving with the ball. You want to see them getting the ball out of their feet and keeping their heads up.

Make sure your players slow down when they turn, so they don't lose control of the ball. You want to see them using both feet and driving off once they have made the turn into the space in front of them.
