Halfy Ground Ball – Soccer

This drill is run just like “Halfy Ground Balls – Lacrosse” except that players are to kick the ball to open space before picking it up.  This is something that has to happen more in youth games.  Too often kids are bunched up fighting for the ball.  Kicking it to open space and getting after it rapidly is a great way to get the ball up.  It is important to know that it is illegal to Kick another players crosse, so if there is an opponents stick near it they will need to either pick it up or flip it to open space as in Halfy Ground Balls – Hockey.
