Passing & Receiving (20 mins)

Passing & Receiving Technical Warm-up.

Set-up:35x25 Yard Grid; 12 players, 6 balls

Progressions: Perform for 90 seconds and switch groups.

1) Black players receive pass from blue players and pass to another free blue player. Once complete the black player finds another blue player with a ball and repeats. Swap roles.

2) Same as 1 but can you play with two touches? But only if you can (this encourages player vision and 'peaking'.Swap roles

Coaching points: Peak, receive at an angle with hips open and ball across body.
