This soccer drill focuses players on passing quickly to an open player, then dribbling into the space created. For the warm-up session, divide the players into two teams. Each team takes a turn to see which of its players can dribble through the most gates in 30 seconds. That team then rests while the other team goes.

Use four cones to make three gates. Each gate should be in the same line; use a line on the field for reference if needed. The first gate should be 5 yards wide with the second being 4 yards wide and the last gate being 3 yards wide. See diagram for a better visual. Place one cone 15-20 yards away from the largest gate.
The first player in the offensive line starts the drill by dribbling towards the first defender and attempts to dribble past the defender and through the first gate. Once the attacker dribbles through the first gate, the first defender is done defending, and the attacker attempts to dribble past the second defender and through the second gate.
This soccer passing drill is suitable for almost any age level, focusing on passing, receiving, and turning skills. Great warmup drill for players to pass and move. Setup: The players are divided in four lines that form a square, with one player starting in the middle of the square. Two soccer balls are needed.
How the Drill Works: Players form a circle with at least two players inside the circle with soccer balls. The players inside the circle pass the ball to a player along the outside of the circle who receives the ball, dribbles inside and repeats the process. Players switch places with the players they pass to.
