Instructions:

- Attackers will attempt to pass the ball around without the Defender winning possession of the ball

Coaching Points:

- First touch, keep the ball in front of your body, use your instep of your foot to trap the ball

- Head up, vision, looking for an open player

- Playing quickly, quick decisions

- Passing the ball v. Just kicking it

- Spacing (Let it run for a few minutes to observe the attackers collectively) stop it once after during an exmaple of "poor spacing." Allow them a chance to correct it, if possible find an example of "good spacing" and continue to encourage it.

Progressions:

- 3 touches or 3 second rule with the ball

- Add a second defender

- *** Use a scoring system the whole time*** (ex. 5 passes = 1 point for the attackers)
