Youth Soccer Drills - Red Light Green Light Drill

Purpose: Great drill for teaching fundamental foot skills for dribbling. Helps teach young children to keep the ball close and under control.

Just like the game we played in our youth, the coach or one of the players is "IT". He or she stands at one end of the field with his or her back to the others and calls out red light, green light one two three and then turns around. The players meanwhile have been dribbling toward him or her and must stop, with their foot on top of the ball, when the player turns around. Anyone moving must go back to the beginning and start over. If a player reaches the person who is "IT" they are the winner.
