Turn and Pass

Set Up: Diamond can be anywhere between 12 to 20 yard on each side with a 3 - 5 yard gate in the center of the diamond. 2 Balls and 8 players in each diamond. 

Sequence: We can start the drill with all players in the middle cones, 2 at each end of the gate, facing there teammates on the ends of the diamond. Start with simple passing into the middle, then back to the outside, following your pass. Experiment with one and two touch passing. Players then progress to receiving the ball in the center and turning to one side of the gate and [1] play the ball to the next line or [2] play the ball to the player running on after checking back to creating space to run on to. 

Coaching Points: Good pace and accuracy of passes, comfortable on both feet, good intelligent movement off the ball to create space to play in, good tempo and work rate, timing of runs, playing the ball to the front foot
