Passing & Control

Groups of 4 - 3 players in a triangle in front of cone. 1 player in the middle.

Player in the middle recieves pass of an outside player then makes a turn and dribbles towards a different player. They play a 1-2 and repeat.

Can progress to passes with different parts of the foot (outside of foot, small chipped pass)

Rotate player in the middle every 2 mins.

Key points -

Players on outside - head up, identify target, non-kicking foot beside ball, strong connection with inside of foot to receiving players feet.

Receiving player - on toes ready for pass, get in line with the ball, relax on impact
