Passing Gates (20 mins)

Organization:

Set up a bunch of gates with cones in a 20x20 grid. Make sure to spread them out so that players don’t start to follow a pattern (like going around in a circle through the gates). Pair players up, each pair with a ball.

Instructions:

Players must try to get as many points as possible by successfully passing the ball to each other through a gate. Once they have passed the ball through one gate, they have to find another gate to go through. Each round should last about 2-3 minutes.

Coaching Points:

- Look up to find the next gate.

- Communication with partner must be present to figure out which gate they are going to.

- Passing with the inside of the foot, measure the weight of your pass.

Progressions:

1. Players must pass the ball through one gate 3 times before going to the next gate.

2. First pass must be through the middle of the gate, and the returning pass must go through the outside of the gate.
