Diamond Passing-Open Up

Create a Diamond with four cones and setup a mannequin or pole in the center. 3-4 players per side with 2 balls. One player from each side starts in center with back to mannequin facing end player. End player A starts with pass into center player jand holds to receive pass back. Center player B shields the ball from "defender" to receive and passes back to end player A. Middle player B then opens up to the side cone to receive a pass back and then dribbles or passes to the opposite end player C. Player A moves to the mannequin to be the next center player and the pattern repeats.

COACHING POINTS :

1. Quality of Passes - Accuracy & Weight

2. Receive with inside of lead foot after opening up to side cone.

3. Communication - call for the pass back after opening up wide.

4. Take a lead first touch away from defender.

5. Position to receive should be level with defender, not past defender.
