Passing & Receiving (15 mins)

Technical Warm-up cont.: Passing & Receiving

A. Passing & Receiving: Grid: 30x20; 9 players in grid, 4 balls

i. Payers pass ball to open player and then go and find someone else. (address coaching points in between variations)

ii. Players pass the ball 6-8 yards long (2-3 touches > what will make this possible? Peaking before receiving)

iib. Check to the ball. Call for it, eye contact, hand gestures.

iii. Players now have to make 10 yard passes or longer, (have players look beyond ten yards before receiving it. why? > speed of play, longer you take the easier it is for defenders to close down and win ball)

iv. Players have to accelerate outside of box with ball. Then dribble back in and find another player.

Coaching points: scan (should know who you are passing to before you receive it), communicate to person you're passing to with verbal and non-verbal cues (don't think that they can just call a name and expect them to be open if they haven't looked up; players who miss it pass or don't call name ) knees bent, arms out away from body,

*hips open and receive ball across body, checking to the player with the ball, hands open showing to feet, eye contact with the player, etc.
