STRIKING THE BALL MODEL SESSION 1 (SHORT PASSING)

1. SKILL INTRODUCTION

Grid 20m x 20m

2 groups, 6 blues, 6 reds

Start off with 6 reds on the outside of grid, 6 blues on the inside with the balls at their feet.

Blues dribble ball freely until they can pass, ball to a red player, who bounces ball back into space for blue to run on (play a 1-2 pass)

Change rolls on coaches call, players to also use left and right only, again on coaches call.

Coaching Points:

Players to get their head up, before passing ball, to make sure they hit feet, and not two players are passing to same player

Correct weight of pass

Provide good angle when recieving bounce pass
