Are the same old drills making your soccer team bored? To hone the soccer skills, being able to play soccer in a dome all year is great but it will burn out even the most die-hard of players with too much of one sport. To spice up things a bit, the following are a few fun drills and games that you can add up to your indoor soccer field layout.
Freeze Tag Soccer
Freeze tag is a variation of the schoolyard game. A tagged person is frozen in place till an unfrozen players comes at his rescue is how most of us remember this game. You probably not have thought of using soccer balls to play this game.
A single player is designated as it and the rest of the team take their soccer balls and try to keep them away from it to play this one. The player is frozen if the chaser touches the ball of the player. By holding their ball above their head, he or she must stand with legs apart. If another player is able to dribble their own ball through the legs of the frozen players then they can be unfrozen. The game is continues till all players are frozen.
Soccer blob starts with two players holding hands that are the other variation on a tag-type game. They must chase down all the other players who will each be dribbling their own ball as they are the blob. The player should link hands with the blog when the blob is kicking away the ball of the player. It becomes more difficult to move as it is quite hard for the players to avoid it as the blob is growing.
There is very little death that is involved here although the name here sounds ominous. Within the marked square, this soccer game has all the players dribble around. In the limited spaces, these are perfect on the indoor field.
Controlling your ball while trying to kick out everyone else’s is what the main aim of this game here is. You get a point if you manage to kick a ball out of the death square and other players have to chase the ball there.
This is great for any number of players as this skill game is quite similar to dodgeball. All players line up on one end of the field as the coach gets a ball. As the coach tries to peg one of them with his soccer ball then they try to run across the other end. You join the firing squad if you get hit. Till all the players are hit, the game continues.
To one of the soccer greats of history, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, AKA Pele is to whom this game pays homage to. You will understand the principle if you have played horse on a basketball net.
Although the game can be played with more, this game only needs two players!
