Objectives of the football exercise: dribbling the football, covering the ball, looking up, kicking

Description of the soccer drill: In a delimited space, every player dribbling a ball. They try to kick other player’s ball off the field. If a player’s ball is kicked out, he must go for it, take it back and then he will be allowed to return to the game. The players without a ball can’t kick other footballs. Every time a player kicks a ball out, he gets a point. At the end of this youth soccer game, the points have to be accounted.
