I have allowed more time at the ned of theis session for playing because it i the first sesion so I can better understand the players.

Side body shape as the ball is passed

Passing player playing to back foot (pressure is loose as the ball is played)

Taking touch inside and out of feet to play away from the pressure

If passes are slow, enoucrage players to make firm passes to ensure teammates will have to take 2 touches, improving quality of pass to teammates will create opporunity to improve first touch.

Progressions:

At semi-opposed pressure behind player B to block passing lane, forcing touch inside.
