Passing & Receiving (20 mins)

Passing & Receiving:

Set-up: 10-12 players within an area and move randomly around it.

- Start with a ratio of one ball for every five or six players.

- Number players 1-10/12 etc.

- Balls start with number 1 and 7, and is passed around in sequence according to their numbers.

- Once players pass it they move to another part of the grid.

- Once ball reaches last player, he passes to number 1 to begin process again.

Progressions:

1) Add footballs until exercise has a ratio of 1:3 and 2:5.

2) U9's > Can you take two or three touches instead of 5 or 6?

2b) U10-U11 > First pass is short, the next pass is long. The next player in sequence must therefore move closer or further away to receive.

3) First pass is low, the next is high. Again receiving players must move into positions to receive the pass either along the ground or in the air.

Coaching Points: Move the ball quickly and accurately, position yourself with an open body. Are you peaking?

Scoring: As a group, can you keep four / five / six balls alive for 60 seconds?

Caution: Ensure players are not static or remain in one area/position and are moving around the area when not in possession (this will happen more and more as more footballs are involved).

3) Get one point everytime you do a combination (wall-pass) with your team.

4) Play game 3 again after making coaching points.

GU9:

1) 3 passes = 1 point

2) Can you play with 2 or 3 touches? What must you do to connect more passes? (spread out & peak)

3) 1 point for every wall-pass

Coaching points: What should you do after you pass the ball? (introduce 3 step rule) Must pass and move. When you perform combination play, need to face up defender and pass and move around them.

For one touch game: players will want to force one touch passes all the time. Introduce decision making, when is the best time to one touch pass? (what should you do before receiving the ball to make this possible <peak>)
