Soccer Drills for Kids

Soccer drills for kids should be focused around fun and lots of touches on the ball. What better way to have fun than to simply play a small sided game with 2 goals to score on.

These small sided games can be applied in team training or with a group of friends.

Make the goals smaller to add more difficulty.


  • Create a small sided soccer field 30 m/yd long, 20 m/yd wide.
  • Adjust field size to players age and skill level.
  • Set up 4 goals, two in each corner of the field, for each team to defend/attack.
  • Goals should not be more than 8 ft wide.
  • 2 teams will play a game. Each team will have two goals to score on, and two goals to defend on possession change.
  • Make the goals smaller or bigger depending on the player group size and skill level.  


  • Limit touches to 1 - 3 touches on the ball. Apply this rule once the players feel comfortable with the ball at their feet.
  • Add a neutral player, or two, to help the attacking team in the possession of the ball.
  • Add a neutral player who will always play on the defensive team, making it harder to score for the attackers.
  • Score goals by dribbling the ball through the goal, instead of shooting.
