Take Stepover - Cones Dribbling Drills for U10-U11


This drill builds on the Take Stepover (Static Ball Controls Drills for U8-U9) and Take Stop Stepover (Cones Dribbling Drills for U8-U9).

When starting with the right foot:

(Switch left and right below when starting with the left foot)

  1. Take position on the left side of the first cone.
  2. Take the ball through the middle of the first cones with the right foot.
  3. Take a small step to reposition the feet.
  4. Once through the cones, move the left foot around the ball from left to right (clockwise).
  5. Reposition the right foot (support foot) in order to turn to the left.
  6. Take the ball with the left foot through the cones.
  7. Step 1-6 is the same for the left foot.

Things to watch out for:

  1. The take move through the cones is crucial. Guide the ball a bit, don't kick it.
  2. Keep the force and angle of the takes consistent.
  3. Try to aim for the middle between cones and keep a 45┬░ angle. It is more of a zig-zag through the cones than going around the cones.
  4. Stay in the rhythm by repositioning the support foot or by jumping on it.
