Passing & Receiving (20 mins)

Passing & Receiving Technical Warm-up.

Set-up:35x25 Yard Grid; 12 players, 6 balls

Progressions: Perform for 90 seconds and switch groups.

1) Black players receive pass from blue players and pass to another free blue player. Once complete the black player finds another blue player with a ball and repeats. Swap roles.

2) Same as 1 but can you play with two touches? But only if you can (this encourages player vision and 'peaking'.Swap roles

3) Players receive square on, then set back to server, then move to create an open body position to receive and find other server. Swap roles

4) Balls start in the middle and now players alternate between passers and receivers. When central players passes to outside player he will instruct for a wall-pass with her, or "take" (become central player). If outside player takes it, the passer looks for a free space anywhere around the grid.

Coaching points: Peak, receive at an angle with hips open and ball across body.

For one touch game: players will want to force one touch passes all the time. Introduce decision making, when is the best time to one touch pass? (what should you do before receiving the ball to make this possible <peak>)
