The following session comes from One Touch Mentality Training Ideas. Join the Soccer Awareness Training Center to access exclusive presentations and sessions.

A ball each passing and moving playing 1 and 2 touches only. Avoiding the cones which represent opponents. Learning to position in the best space possible between cones.


The goal is to teach

  1. playing in tight areas,

  2. developing fast feet,

  3. positioning off the ball

  4. Developing a spinning head or rubber neck I call it

  5. Defending condensing attacking spreading out

  6. Teaching spacing and moving into passing lanes (between cones and between opponents) to get free


Restricted area to play in. Cones represent opponents so players must avoid passing close to them or positioning close to them. Blue cones the free players so always an overload.


Add goals. Now a REAL GAME SITUATION. Keeping score making it competitive working between restricted number of touches and unlimited touches to test players peripheral vision and awareness.
