Semi-Static Techincal Passing (15 mins)

Organization

Players are split into 2 groups. Servers and Players. The servers will have the balls to start. For each exercise, the players will work for 1 minute intervals.

Field Set up

Roughly a 15-18 yards circle.

Detail

Players will start close to the Servers. Roughly 1 yard from one another. Players will pass the ball back to the server on the opposite side that they received the pass on. See Example 1. To start we will work in 1 touch. Both players complete the exercise. Passes will all be completed with the inside of the foot. Encourage the players to use both feet.

Techincal Passing with Speed training (15 mins)

Organization

Same as previous exercise

Field Set up

Same as previous exercise

Detail

This time, after the players complete their passes on the outside, they must then run around a cone and find another server. (The line on the diagram is simply an example. We want to encourage the player NOT to run in circle. All passes here are done in 2 touch scenarios. Encourage the players to decide themselves how they want to perform the touch. (inside foot, outside foot, drag over)

Progressions

Now instead of playing the pass back to the server that they received the ball from, the player can choose to play a pass to either the left or the right hand side (whichever of the two choices does not have the ball). See example 2. Players still complete the movement through the middle of the grid. Start by limiting the turn and pass to 3 touch, then 2 touch.

Competencies

Different touch passes

Opening the body up to play away from pressure

Decision making

Explosive movement (through the middle grid)
