Phase 1 - Player 1 plays a pass the player 2. Player 2 turns with the ball and plays to player 3. Player 3 dribbles the ball forward and plays to the next player in line. Players follow their pass each

time and direction is switched each time (ie pass to 3 then to 3B).

Phase 2 - Player 1 passes the ball into player 2 and moves into correct position to receive pass back. Player 2 passes ball into path of player 1 who plays a pass into player 3. Player 2 peels

around the goes to back of line of player 3. Player 3 dribbles the ball forward and playes to next player # 1. Same on both sides.

Phase 3 - 1 -Player 1 passes the ball into player 2 and 2 -moves into correct position to receive pass back. 3- Player 2 passes ball into path of player 1 who plays a pass into player 3. 4-Player 2 peels

around and receives the ball back from player 3. 5 -Player 2 now plays into the path of player 3 who dribbles ball forward and pass into next player 1.

Progression - can it be played 1 touch?

Coaching Points: Correct passing technique and weight. Checking to receive ball. Play the pass to correct foot to keep the flow. Good first touch out of feet and controlled dribble with outside of foot. Dribble with outside of feet.
