Dutch Triangles 1 (5 mins)

Dutch Triangles Activity 1 (7 min)

The exercise starts by Player A passing to Player B with the inside of his foot. Before Player A makes the pass, Player B should check away two or three steps behind him before moving forward to receive the pass with forward momentum. Player B receives the pass with his right foot and pushes the ball to his right behind the cone. While this is going on, Player A simply follows his pass and moves to the next cone in back of the players already waiting there in line. Player B then continues the exercise by playing the ball with his right foot to Player C, who then plays the ball to Player A to complete the triangle.

Variation 1: Change direction to play with left foot.

Variation 2: Add a second ball to reduce lag time.

Coaching Points: The ball should be played crisply at game speed, communication, quick movement, use of both feet

Dutch Triangles 2 (5 mins)

Dutch Triangle Activity 2 (7 min)

To add more interplay between the players involved in the exercise, an extra pass is added. When Player A passes to Player B, he should follow his pass to receive a ball back on the ground on a one-timed ball that has been cushioned. As Player A moves to the ball, Player B shuffles back and to his right to mimic the off-the-ball movements to create separation after a pass during the game. Once Player B has moved around his cone and towards Player C, Player A plays an angled ball to Player B to meet him in stride. Player B then hits a one-timed ball to Player C and continues on with the exercise just as Player A did.

Variation 1: Change direction

Variation 2: Add a second ball

Coaching Points: Crisp passing, communication, quick movement on and off the ball, weight of passes
