Organization

8 players at minimum are organized in a dimond shape passing sequence as shown in the diagram. a mannequin or another flag/pylon is place in the centre ('B') of the diamond to break it up into two halves. The ball is played from point 'A' to 'B' to 'C' to 'D' and 'D' to 'B' to 'E' back to 'A'. The players follow their pass as indicated by the yellow lines! Two balls are in play at the same time. One starting at point 'A' and the other at point 'D'

Coaching Points

Player 'A' plays a pass to Player 'C' who has shown for the ball and plays a Wall Pass to Player 'B' (1/2 Turned) and looks for the return pass behind the flag to run onto and make a first touch pass to Player 'D'.

As play starts with Player 'A' so does Player 'D' to Player 'E'.

1. Play pass to the forward foot if possible to encourage forward play.

2. The speed of the pass is very important today. Players need to be able to play/receive with speed at all times.

3. Show (Support) the pass when a player lifts their head up or takes a touch.

4. Shield the ball when receiving and change the direction of the path of the ball (touch direction).

5. Timing of the forward pass with the right weight and speed in front of the player running onto the ball is key to successful penetrating play.
