Hoffman Pro Camps: 3-Cone Drill [GoPro video]

My new GoPro video shows a great drill that works to both improve your first touch and prepare you for the rest of your training session. See below for a detailed breakdown on how to implement this drill into your routine today. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to keep up with the latest videos from Hoffman Pro Camps.

3-Cone Drill

What you need:



-3 Cones

How it works:

1).Start by playing the ball to your partner through any two cones, ball must stay on the ground.

2).With their first touch your partner must set themselves up to play through a different set of cones.

3).Score a point by forcing your opponent to make one of the following mistakes: Taking more than two touches, playing through the same set of cones you received the ball from, not passing through any set of cones, or striking a cone while attempting to play through them.

Pro tip: Make it harder for your opponent by playing firm balls and changing direction quickly with your first touch.

Junior year at UCLA highlight tape

I threw together a highlight tape with most of my goals from my junior year at UCLA. Following this season I was  selected 13th overall by the Philadelphia Union in the 1st round of the MLS SuperDraft.
