Passing patterns MF to ST

Set Up: Set up with 4 players in a diamond (DMF, 2 AMF, ST). Have a GKer in goal if possible, but the pattern can also be done elsewhere on the field.

Instructions: A) As the AMFers show for the DMF, he or she chooses to play to the left or the right AMFer (1). DMF slides for a set (2) and then finds the ST (3). Meanwhile the AMFers criss-cross looking to bypass the D and look to shoot at goal. The ST chooses to whom he or she will pass (4) and then spins looking for secondary scoring chances.

B) As the AMFers show for the ball, the DMFer finds the ST instead (1). He or she sets one of the AMFers (2) who then looks to either play in the DMFer who's made an overlapping run (3) or the other DMFer who's made a penetrating run to bypass the D (3). The ST then spins to look for secondary scoring chances or to finish a cross if the DMFer is wide. The AMFer who played the killer pass slides into the middle of the field to keep the balance.

Progressions: 1) Any number of other passing patterns; 2) allow the players to choose the passing pattern as they play 3) add a defender on the ST; 4) add a second defender in the midfield; 5) add a second CB to make it 4v3.; 6) add a second goal and GKer and play 4v4.

Coaching Points: Play at game speed. Quality technique especially with the passing and sets. Realistic movement. Concentrate on every aspect to keep the quality high. Communicate with teammates through the passes and body position. Be aware of body position and creative opportunities.
