Pass Rotation with a Finish (15 mins)

Description

Pass Rotation with a shot to finish

Players follow pass,the person who shoots goes into the net after his shot

Tempo can be increased by adding footballs

It can be changed to suit ie have a set/pass through such as Black can pass a through ball to RTed to shoot and Yellow makes a curving run off the ball or Blue passes to Black ,Balck sets the ball for Blue to pass through to Red

Another progression is to add a defender ie after shooting Red becomes the defender

Encourage off the ball movement and players to lose markers by checking away and timing runs to recieve the pass,to think about the next pass not just there's
