Main theme 2/2 (15 mins)

Organization:

As shown. 4 (or more) players, 1 ball.

Instructions:

(1) Player A passes to B, who sets the ball back to A in one touch.

A then plays through to C.

C dribbles to the middle line of cones then passes to the next player in line.

Rotation: A - B - C.

Two-touch limit for A and B.

(2) Same as (1), but now B rolls forward after playing the double pass to A and receives a cross from C for a shot on goal. Rotation still A-B-C. C collects ball after shot from A and returns to line behind A.

Coaching Points:

Player B:

- Check wide to receive pass from A.

- Weight and angle of double pass back to A

All players:

- Point to where you want the pass.

- Call for the ball.

Progressions:

- Add a shadow defender to B so B can check wide to drag the defender and create the passing lane from A to C.

- Live defender on B. If defender stays tight to B, A can pass directly to C. If defender takes away double pass, B can open up and play directly to C.
