Pressing warm up passing drill (15 mins)

Description

Set up as shown. Rule is to pass to the man on your left and run to the position on your right. If you receive a pass then the player opposite must run to press and close down. Continue the sequence. Rotate the direction (pass right, run left)

Progression

- Players can choose to pass either side but continue to run to the position opposite

Technical

- Improve passing and receiving techniques

- Body position when closing down

Tactical

- Dictate the direction of play

Physical

- Make up ground as quickly as possible

Psychological/Social

- Communication

- Encourage team mates

- Maintain focus on the task of either receiving and passing or pressing

Learning Objectives

Passing drill with some pressing movements and triggers involved. Can players identify a trigger to close down by, initially, moving off the pass and, progressively, by realising where the previous player has pressed and what direction he is showing the passing player to play (dictating the direction of play).
