Receiving To Play Forward: Technical

Practice

This session develops our players

ability to receive the ball in tight

spaces.

The Session

Organisation

1. 3 teams of 3 players. Set up the pitch with cones

forming 3 imaginary lines: a line at one end, a line in the

middle and a line at the other end. 2. Each team

occupies a line. 3. Team 1 (end) pass to Team 2 (middle)

who pass to Team 3 (other end). 4. The ball is then

passed back from Team 3 to Team 2 to Team 1. 5. 3 balls

in play. 1 ball starts with Team 1. 2 Balls start with team

3. The game commences with all balls being passed

simultaneously into the middle to Team 2. 6. The players

in Team 2 (middle) should be encouraged to move to

receive the pass. 7. Allow players to vary who they play

the ball to (i.e. not always the man immediately opposite

them).

Skill Development

Control, communication, passing accuracy

Coaching Points

The movement of the player in the middle is vital. Can

he get ‘side-on’ to receive? Awareness, of the other

players in the middle and the player you are passing to

Think about how you receive the ball, for example, front

foot to guard from defenders or back foot to play

forward
