Everton Diamond Passing and Turning (30 mins)

Everton Diamond Passing and Turning

4 players with one ball get in a diamond shape (cones set out 20 yards deep and 12 yards wide) with a player on each cone

The first player passes to one of the wings, receives it back, then passes to the other wing, receives it back and switches the ball to the other side of the diamond.

Players on the wing should think about the cone as a defender and try to make space and receive the ball with the far foot from the passer. Encourage the use of both feet and movement as success increases.

Once the rhythm is there have the players on the edges work a turn as they receive, then work a turn back to where the ball came from and pass it back.

Increased difficulty can be calling out a turn for them to use, reinforcing using the far foot from the defender when dribbling and making sure to create space before receiving the ball with a proper check off. All of the details that have been worked in the turning drills should be applied here as well.

3 out 1 in passing (20 mins)

3 out 1 in passing

A grid of 8 x 8 with 3 players outside the grid and 1 player inside.

Player 1 passes to the middle and gets the pass back.

While this is happening, player 2 passes to player 3

As the player receives the pass from the outside, they play a wall pass with the middle and works that wall pass around to the next side of the square.

Player in the middle has to constantly get their head on a swivvle and see the next pass coming.

Potential Progression

Only at higher levels but the coach can shout change and have the players change the direction of the passes to see if they can make the quick adjustments.

Coaching Points

Player on the middle must receive on the back foot

Details for passing (name, info, show with your hand where you want the pass, weight and direction of pass)

When the player is going to receive the pass from another on the outside, they should be checking away, checking to, chek shoulder, fix shape and receive on the half turn

Player 3 now passes to the middle and player 1 passes to player 2

They are all constantly moving around the grid and the player in the middle is always with his head on a swivvle being sure to up up to the new ball coming in to the grid.

Power and Finesse (10 mins)

Power and Finesse

Divide the team into 2. Coach passes the balls to the players. First shot is taken from outside the 18 (power with laces) then the shooter moves forward and takes a shot from about the penalty spot (finess, placement into a corner). The shooter scores no goals and is eliminated. The shooter scores 1 of 2 then they stay in the game and go behind the line with his teammates. If the shooter scores both then they can either save a fellow teammate who is eliminated already or challenge the other team to score both. If a challeneg is the choice and the opponent does not score both shots, they are eliminated. First team to lose all of their players loses.
