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.

Texans Passing Drill (40 mins)

Texans passing drill

•In a group of 4 with 1 ball get in single file with 2 people on the ends and 2 in the middle with the ball on one of the ends. 2 yards should be between each player in the row.

•The ball passes to the closest person in the middle, then back to where it came, then sent to the next person in the middle, back to the other player in the middle and finally across to the other side of the grid.

•It is important that the player who received first in the middle make an accurate pass back to where it came and then move to the side about 1 yard to allow space for the pass to go past him/her to the other player in the middle. Then the player comes back to the middle to receive the pass and send it to the other side.

Texans on a larger scale

•Exact same format as above but now 5 yards between each player in the row. Increase the distance if success is attained.

•More focus now on talking when passing, using one touch if possible and moving after a pass is made. The 2nd player in the middle (furthest from the ball) needs to keep deep in order to allow for their pass back to the other player in the middle to be a pass back (set pass) and not sideways.

•Increased levels of difficulty can be a pass in the air to start it (if not able to pass it in the air, the ball can be thrown to force the receiver to work a pass that is air born). You can also add in all sorts of combination plays from this set up.
