FineSoccer Drill 22 - Fun Games

There are a number of fun games you can play to give your team a break during practice while still accomplishing some things. A favorite of many players is Soccer Golf.

Pick 9 targets around the field or complex you are practicing at. The players have to hit each of these 9 targets (in the proper order) in the fewest number of shots.

To make this a more interesting game, play with teams of two where the two players alternate shots.

Some of the basic rules I tend to put in is that the entire course must be played while the players are jogging (even in fun games, I need to get some conditioning in there). Also, I will allow keepers to punt their "tee shot" for each hole.

Pick holes that are going to be a challenge (for example, if there is a sign on a fence, they must hit the sign in order to build in chipping into the game).

The players have a great time and usually don't realize that they are working on driven balls, chips, conditioning and various other types of passes.

There are many variations you can do with soccer golf but done correctly, the players can have a blast and the coach can accomplish his goals as well

If you have any other ways of playing soccer golf, please post them in the comments section below to share them with others.
