Ronaldo Speed Test

Aim

To test players ability to dribble the ball at pace and with control

Develop the dribbling skill level of the player

Activity

Players start in the box (1) without the ball. The ball is placed between the cones at gate 2

When the coach calls "GO" the player runs out to the ball dribbles through the gate and turns right towards gate 3

The player dribbles around the first cone at gate 3, in between both cones and turns right around the second cone

The player then stays inside the 18 yard box and heads to gate 4 (shown diagram B). The player dribbles between the cones and turns left around the second cone

The last turn is through gate 5. Once dribbling through the gate the player continues into the box and shoots.

Key Points

This is a timed drill so that players can be retested to monitor development.

The time starts when the coach says go and finishes when the ball hits the net after the shot

The focus for the players should be on maintaining control of the ball with close touches - not big touches and chasing the ball

Players will get a practice and a timed go
