The ability to dribble with pace, change speed, and then cut back inside is one of the most important combinations of 1v1 skills in youth soccer – yet it’s not taught often enough.
That is why I love the 1v1 Dribbling with Two Goals training video produced by Sithembiso Nkosi. This 1 vs 1 drill has been adapted from the Coerver coaching DVDs. The participant’s age group range from 11 to the eldest 14 years.
Key skills developed:
- Dribbling with pace while under pressure
- Decision-making that adapts to the situation and the defender
- Finishing with either foot
- Defenders must close the space quickly, but not overrun the opponent
