Phase #1 (15 mins)

This activity will help build simple combinations to create scoring opportunities on goal.

- #2 initiates the drill by checking off the middle pole (creating space off a defender, opening hips)

- #1 starts with the ball and plays ball into #2's back foot

- #2 dribbles at speed towards #3

- #3 back pedals off the pole to create a passing lane (and stay onsides) before the ball is played

- #2 slips the ball in behind the pole for #3 to finish on goal

**Rotation - (#1 --> #2) (#2 --> #3) (#3--> staring line).

**Alternate angle of which ball is received in order to get both lines going. RAPID FIRE.

Coaching Points:

1) Mobility off of defender (pole) in order to create Receiving Lines and open hips to next pass

2) Understand proper weight/pace of each pass

3) Be ruthless on the finish

Phase #2 (15 mins)

This activity will create oppportunities for players to combine (bounce pass/give n go) and get shooting chances on goal.

- #2 initiates the drill by checking off the middle pole (creating space off a defender, opening hips)

- #1 starts with the ball and plays ball into #2's back foot

- #2 will now play feet into the #3

- #3 will bounce it back into the #2 who will play it in behind the pole

- #3 will round his run around the pole (to stay onside) and run onto the through ball to finish on goal

**Rotation - (#1 --> #2) (#2 --> #3) (#3--> staring line).

**Alternate angle of which ball is received in order to get both lines going. RAPID FIRE.

Coaching Points:

1) Mobility off of 1st pole is crucial in receiving the ball and continuing the speed of the combination

2) Bounce pass needs to be quick and to feet in order to accompany the speed of play

3) Early communication. BE SPECIFIC (play my right foot, through, etc)

Phase #3 (15 mins)

This activity will create scoring opportunities on goal by breaking multiple lines by quick passing combinations throught he middle of the field.

- #2 will check off the 1st pole, but yell "Skip Me"

- #1 will play the ball into the feet of #3, who will lay the ball into space for #2

- #2 will slip the ball in behind the poles for #4 to run onto and finish on goal

**Rotation - (#1 --> #2) (#2 --> #4) (#3--> stay for next rotation) (#4-->starting line)

**Alternate angle of which ball is received in order to get both lines going. RAPID FIRE.

Coaching Points:

1) Timing of run is important for success of the combination (staying onside)

2) Communication to switch the point of attack

3) Appropriate weight/pace of each pass (ball into feet = firm, ball into space = delicate)
