Set Up: 4 Players per 10 by 10 Grid, Players are devided into 2 sub groups by bibs. 1 ball per group.

Exercise 1: 2 Touch passing, Players move freely within grid, at no point can a player stand, they should be constantly moving into space and asking for the ball. At this point any player can recieve the next pass.

Exercise 2: Same exercise except 1 Touch passing. Players are still able to pass to any color at this point.

Exercise 3: Revert back to 2 touch passing but now Black must play to Purple and Purple must play to black. Players are now asked to work harder off the ball to 'show' for the next pass.

Exercise 4: Same exercise as above but now 1 touch play. Players need to work hard off the ball to find a position to allow the passer to play the way they face.

*NOTE: During all the Exercises ALL players must be constantly moving and showing for the next pass.

We now start to build in basic combinations:

Exercise 5: UP-BACK-THROUGH. Purple (A) begins with ball and plays to purple (B) feet, After pass purple (A) drops off to create more time and space. Purple (B) recieves and plays ball back to purple (A) feet. As ball is travelling back to purple (A) both black players are showing and asking for through pass. Pattern is repeated with both black players.

NOTE: All players are constantly being asked to move around the grid and find good spaces to recieve the next pass. Players should idearly be able to play the way they face.

Progression: 1 touch play.

Exercise 6: Wall Pass Combination.

Purple (A) passes to Black (A) and quickly follows pass acting as a PASSIVE defender. Black (B) moves off the ball to show for pass. Black (B) plays 1 touch wall pass back to Black (A) who has run behind purple (A). While this is going on Purple (B) is reading where wal pass will complete and is moving into a position to recive the next pass from Black (A). Black (A) passes to Purple (B) and follows pass to passive defend.

At this point the drill repeates but now Purples are playing wall pass.

Progression: Everything is 1 touch. This requires players to read the next pass and move quickly to space ready to recieve each pass.
