A Killer Overlap Drill

By Lawrence Fine, Author of the FineSoccer Coaching Bible.

Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured activity is a two person overlapping drill.  It combines passing, receiving, dribbling and fitness.

Start with a player on the corner of the end line and the 18 and the second player is on the sideline around 25 yards out.


The player with the ball passes out wide to the front foot of the receiving player


The receiving player receives the ball and dribbles on an angle toward the middle


While this is happening, the original passer makes an overlapping run


The players then do the same thing again with the opposite roles


They do this all the way down the field

This activity allows the players to work on passing to feet (or just in front of feet), receiving and attacking with the first touch and then appropriate runs all while building in some fitness.

Have a great day!
