When coach shouts switch, players with the ball leave their ball where it is and look for another, players without the ball look to get a ball.

Play for 10 minutes!

Adaptations/Progressions:

1) Give every player a ball

Passing in pairs (10 mins)

Same area.

Players get into pairs, one ball between a pair or group of three depending on numbers.

All they are looking to do is work together, passing the ball around the congested area. Focusing on passing with the inside of the foot, communicating and controlling the ball.

Adaptations/Progressions:

- Make area smaller/bigger depending on how the group are getting along. We want success first so start with a bigger grid and adapt as you see fit. You know your group!

- Bring groups together

- Take some balls out and just get players passing to whoever does bot have a ball.

Duration - 10 minutes
