Skill Intro 1T (10 mins)

Description

Players must use their first touch to play the ball either to the left or the right of their square. As soon as they have done this they must then aim to pass the ball through the middle grid and into their partner's square.

Their partner must then use their first touch to guide the ball slightly out of their own grid to play the return pass back.

Coaching Points

Quality of first touch will help or hinder players - a poor first touch will make the subsequent pass harder as it will be from a wider angle.

Skill Intro 1T (10 mins)

Description

Player 1 passes the ball into the feet of player 2 who must turn and pass the ball to one of the three players outside of the cones, either to his left, right or behind him.

This drill will not only improve the passing technique of the players, but also improve their awareness; knowing what options they have before receiving the ball.

Coaching Points

Make sure the players get their heads up and look before passing, being aware of what is around them and where there are good options to pass the ball.

Get the players on the outside of the cones to keep moving around and not staying in the same place, making it more difficult for the player inside the cones.
