Warm-Up: Receiving Boxes (10 mins)

Description

Make six 2x2 boxes. Split group into pairs. 1 ball between them. A player must pass to their partner inside one of the boxes. The player receives the pass with one touch, taking them out of the box through one of the 3 other sides (obviously excluding the side the ball was passed through).

Make this a competition, 1 point for each successful first touch, 2 points if it is with the weak foot.

Coaching Points

Head up - evaluate which side is the best option

Inside or outside to receive

Be sideways, it makes movement easier on the hips

Activity 1: Pass and Receive (10 mins)

Description

Set up 2 different colored cones 3 yards apart. Line up a couple of players 5 yards away on a seperate cone. 1 player stands between the colored cones. The first person in line passes to the Player between the cones and calls a color. The player must receive the ball with one touch taking it towards (around the outside of) that color cone. They then dribble to the back of the line, the passer takes their place.

Can be progressed to opposite colors, and/or competition - first line to make 10 passes.

Coaching Points

Check in and out. It is important that the receiving player has enough space to be able to guide the ball around the cone with one touch - the angle must be right. If they are standing directly between the cones or too close to the, then it will fail. Have them back up.

Activity 2: Passing Circuit (10 mins)

Description

Make 2 10x10 grids, 4 kids in each. Very simple to start, one player in each corner. A ball gets passed clockwise or counter-clockwise through each player. Have them receive correctly with their first touch opening them up to their target, with the second touch they will pass.

If it is going well, have players follow their pass.
