Raceway to score

Start & organisation

  • Create two teams, place them as shown in diagram (each with a ball) and give each player a number
  • Coach calls a number, and the corresponding players run with the ball around the goal to their right, before running with it towards the other goal to shoot & score

Timings: 10-15 minutes
Pitch area: 20m x 15m (small field)
Other rules: N/A


  • Call two numbers at a time
  • Encourage them to run with the ball closer to the goal before scoring

What to look for

  • Are the players taking lots of touches on the ball?
  • Are the players running with the ball and under control?
  • Are they using both feet?

What the coach can do

  • Positively praise those who run with the ball at speed
