Basic

Passing and receiving in triangles.

Start with both groups passing in triangles.

.

1 plays 2 and follows his pass and opens up on the half turn to receive a ball from the next in line,

.

Use more than one ball per group. The person in the middle 2 starts the session by demanding the ball from 1.

1 passes to 2 and becomes him, 2 passes to 3 and becomes him and 3 dribbles the ball back at pace.

Progression 3

Now the group works as one with players working with only one ball per side starting from player 1.

Player 1 plays 2 and becomes him, 2 plays 3 and becomes him and 3 now plays the longer ball to the opposite groups 1 and becomes him.

Awareness is important ensuring that the ball is always served in from player 1 to 2 at the same time from each side to make the session work

Progression 4

Player 1 passes to 2 and becomes player 3.

Player 2 passes to 3 and joins the group behind where player 1 came from.

Player 3 receives and plays a forward pass to player 4 and take up the space left by player 2.

Player 4 plays back to player 3 in the middle and 3 plays to player 5 and joins the back of the red group.

Passing/Player rotation 1-5 is shown here from the blue groups perspective. the red group will have the same passing/player movements going the other way.

Remember that both groups go at the same time so awareness in critical and communication from players in understanding player rotation.
