Passing and Reciving

3 v 3 w/ Neutrals (30 mins)

Setup

20 x 20 grid

Organization

2 teams of 3 inside

1 neutral outside on each side

Objective

Goal is to pass the ball across the space from 1 neutral player to the 1 on the other side. 1 point for each successful transition across the field.

Neutral players may be used at any time and can move anywhere horizontally on the touchline - 2 min games rotate

Begin with the neutral players able to pass back to any player on the field, then require that the pass back from the neutral player must go to any player other than the one who made the pass to the neutral player. This encourages players to find space and be aware of where they are on the field relative to the ball.

Coaching Points

1 - Is your pass strong enough to make it to the player you were passing to?

2 - First touch - What direction should your first touch be? into space / tight / away from pressure

3 - If the ball is here, where can you be to make yourself open for a pass?

4 - How should we angle our body to be ready to move forward after we receive a pass? Body shape to receive to play forward

5 - How can we let player know we're ready to receive a pass? - Communication
