Soccer Ball Control Training Drill

Start this soccer drill by running through the agility ladder, picking up the soccer ball as you exit the agility ladder, and dribble the ball through the six cones; and back again through the cones.

Leave the soccer ball in front of the ladder and run through the ladder once again from the opposite side, pick up the second soccer ball and dribble it through the zig zag cone formation and back again through cones.

Once the ball is brought back to the starting point, one repetition is completed.

Repeat 3 - 4 times for a completed set. Attempt 3 - 4 sets x 3 - 4 repetitions.

Focus on controlling the soccer ball close to your feet as you go through the cones. Every step should follow with a touch on the ball.
