Includes In-Depth Information on Striker Movement

Soccer is a sideways on sport -- players will have much more success when they are able to receive the ball at an angle. Being sideways on allows players, in advance of the ball, to be able to see peripherally advancing defenders.

These exercises are excellent for developing this sideways on aspect of receiving and passing the ball. This aspect of play becomes particularly important when one touch soccer is required. Being able to have the body halfway turned enables attacking players to use a couple of maneuvers to get past defenders.

Sideways on Soccer Using Corridors

sideways on soccer

Now we have the two groups play together. Start Position is player (1) passes into Player (4). Defender (B) cannot close that player down until they have had their first touch. It is important to keep the start position passive from a defensive perspective.


  1. A player can’t pass forward in their own corridor or zone.
  2. A player can pass forward to the other corridor.
  3. A player can pass back in their own corridor.

4 v 4 game. Players have to pass diagonally forward because of the condition set. This develops the checking and passing habits of players. Players stay in their same corridors or zones. Theme is to have them check off at an angle and sideways on so they can see the opponent, their team mates and the goal behind them. Strikers work together and link up trying to create angles of support between each other, one short, one long etc.

Develop: Increase the number of corridors and players.
