Passing Square

6 players per square. Setup a 2 yrd passing gate & a first touch gate at each corner. Also setup a passing gate in the middle of each side of the square. The player objective is for each pass to go through the passing gates and also the first touch to go through the gate towards the direction of the next pass. The central passing gate is to further encourage a directional first touch and a more accurate pass down the line.

You can make it a contest to see how many times an individual player is succesful at passing through the gate and/or getting the first touch through the gate. A point is awarded for both.

Hit the Cone Accuracy

Now place a tall cone in each middle gate and add an accuracy challenge for the players. Each time they knock down the tall cone, they get point - but their pass must also go through the passing gate to the next player. After they knock down the cone, the player must stand it back up on his way to the next position. Who can be the player to "Hit the Cone" the most ?
