Texans Passing Drill (45 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.

Practice organisation

• Practice area 30yds in length, full width of pitch, incorporating

penalty area with goal, as illustrated.

• 12 players (incl. GK), working in 3 groups of

3 Attackers plus 2 Servers.

• Supply of balls with A’s & with S’s.

• Practice starts with: A1 touches ball past cone to shoot from

distance in central area.

• A1 then assists A2 with a wall-pass for A2 to shoot

at goal from an angle.

• After assisting A2: A1 overlaps S1 cone to

receive a pass from S on corner of penalty area, to supply A2 & A3,

moving into scoring positions from outside area.

Detail

• Employ power & placement skills when striking on goal.

• Observe position & movement of GK before deciding technique to

strike at goal.

• Concentrate on excellent technique: body position/shape,

footwork, arriving into position/timing

of movement.

• Clean contact on ball with a chosen part of body or foot surface.

• Movements & interchanges of A’s should co-ordinate to cover

major goal-scoring areas within penalty area.

• Simple progression for this practice is:

- Position D on edge of penalty area to defend cross from A1 &

block shots from A2.

Key coaching points

• Strike with power & accuracy from a distance.

• Keep ball low when striking at goal.

• Deliver crosses accurately, avoiding GK’s intercepting range.

• Early decision on selection of technique to use, striking at goal.

• Contact ball with precision & excellent technique.
