Playing the Ball Forward

24x24 box. With more than 10 players, form 2 boxes. Use mannequins, sticks, or cones inside the grid to mark starting positions for the players. 2 soccer balls, one at each end.

Players will start on the "defender" and then check wide to receive in a position to play forward. Players wil pass diagonally to the matching color cone. The ball will restart at each end going to the opposite direction. Players follow their pass.

Progression

-Check away and then back in front of the defender (double movement). Receive the ball and turn to the inside or outside.

-Check away and blindside run to receive the ball inside the defender.

Coaching Points

-Check off the defender and open your body to play forward. Our first element of attacking transition is to play the ball forward. Receive across your body.

-Minimum touches to increase speed of play and transition.

-Eyes up! Find your next pass.
