These soccer
conditioning speed drills
should be done at the
beginning of soccer
practice and after a
warm-up of stretching and
light jogging.  Speed drills
should not be done if
muscles are sore or
strained, or at the end of
soccer practice.

Soccer conditioning
speed drills should be
concluded with light
jogging.  Also stretching
at the end of soccer
practice is a good idea.
