Grid Passing

12 GRIDS - ONE AIM - PASS & RECEIVE

THE SETUP

The playing area is divided into twelve 2x2 yard grids, laid out in the format shown in the image

- There is one player inside each grid, making a total of 12 players

- There are 4 footballs

THE RULES

Players are required to pass the ball to another player in an adjacent grid

- Players can pass in a lateral or linear direction

- No diagonal passes are allowed

- Two players cannot pass the ball to the same player

- All passing is two-touch

Change a player’s positioning within the grid to give them a taste of all sorts of situations.

PROGRESSIONS

- Passes must always be diagonal and can go over more than one grid.

- Introduce one-touch passing and different kinds of passes (slightly raised, sharp, etc.)

- Use one football of a different colour and mark out a particular player on the grid. Every time the ball reaches that player, give a point to the players. Set a minimum target, say 10 times in 1 minute, that the player needs to receive the coloured ball

COACHING POINTS

- Good verbal and non-verbal communication

- Good body shape when receiving the pass

- Passing technique needs to be perfect

- Passing needs to be smooth

- Players cannot hang onto the ball for long

- Players need to have their heads up and be aware of the players around their square
