Running Back & Forth

Running Back & Forth

In running back & forth, players perform passes, headers, or volleys with two teammates.

Set Up

Set up cones as shown below. Have players get into groups of three. Each group needs two soccer balls. The two players with soccer balls line up at the cones. The other player lines up between them.

How It Works

For one minute the player in the middle runs back and forth performing passes/headers/volleys with the outside players. Have the player in the middle count how many repetitions they perform successfully. After one minute rotate the player in the middle.

Coaching Points

Players can compete to see who can get the most successful passes/headers/volleys in one minute. A coach can also use this as a conditioning drill by spreading the cones further apart.
