Passing in Numbers

•Get the group into groups of 4 or 5 and have them number themselves off. #1 passes to #2, #2 to #3 and so on. They should be in a 10 x 10 grid.

•Coaching points are calling their number before the player before them receives the ball so that they know where each other are. Players should look around when they don’t have the ball to facilitate speed of the passes. No one should ever be standing.

•Progressions include demanding 1 touch passing, having them not talk in order to encourage more spatial awareness without the ball, checking their shoulder, fixing their shape, receiving on the half turn, using 2 touches as a mandatory and have their first touch come across their body away from pressure.

3 out 1 in passing (20 mins)

3 out 1 in passing

A grid of 8 x 8 with 3 players outside the grid and 1 player inside.

Player 1 passes to the middle and gets the pass back.

While this is happening, player 2 passes to player 3

As the player receives the pass from the outside, they play a wall pass with the middle and works that wall pass around to the next side of the square.

Player in the middle has to constantly get their head on a swivvle and see the next pass coming.

Potential Progression

Only at higher levels but the coach can shout change and have the players change the direction of the passes to see if they can make the quick adjustments.

Coaching Points

Player on the middle must receive on the back foot

Details for passing (name, info, show with your hand where you want the pass, weight and direction of pass)

When the player is going to receive the pass from another on the outside, they should be checking away, checking to, chek shoulder, fix shape and receive on the half turn

Player 3 now passes to the middle and player 1 passes to player 2

They are all constantly moving around the grid and the player in the middle is always with his head on a swivvle being sure to up up to the new ball coming in to the grid.

3 Team Possession

Divide your group into 3 teams. Make the space appropriate for the age level and number of players you have. 2 of the 3 teams are on offense, 1 is on defense. Once the defense wins the ball, the color they won it from is now on defense and play continues.

Great for working transition from O to D and vice versa, also great for giving your offense time on the ball to learn to possess the ball. Make it more challenging with limit of touches, number of passes for a point, must be a combination play etc.
