Week Two: Crab Drill

Crab Drill
The crab drill is a perfect way to teach offensive skills while ensuring that the entire team is participating. One or more players act like crabs intent on taking possession away from the offensive “fish.”

This video is one of over forty great soccer drills in our training series, Coaching Youth Soccer: Ages 7 to 9.

This looks really great and something coaches can easily use for drills with the younger kids. Your video segments were perfect… quick and to the point.
