Passing in numbers

Passing in Numbers

•Get the group into groups of 4 or 5 and have them number themselves off. #1 passes to #2, #2 to #3 and so on. They should be in a 10 x 10 grid.

•Coaching points are calling their number before the player before them receives the ball so that they know where each other are. Players should look around when they don’t have the ball to facilitate speed of the passes. No one should ever be standing.

•Progressions include demanding 1 touch passing, having them not talk in order to encourage more spatial awareness without the ball, checking their shoulder, fixing their shape, receiving on the half turn, using 2 touches as a mandatory and have their first touch come across their body away from pressure.

3 Teams possession

3 Team Possession

Divide your group into 3 teams. Make the space appropriate for the age level and number of players you have. 2 of the 3 teams are on offense, 1 is on defense. Once the defense wins the ball, the color they won it from is now on defense and play continues.

Great for working transition from O to D and vice versa, also great for giving your offense time on the ball to learn to possess the ball. Make it more challenging with limit of touches, number of passes for a point, must be a combination play etc.

receive a pass from S on corner of penalty area, to supply A2 & A3,

moving into scoring positions from outside area.

strike at goal.

• Concentrate on excellent technique: body position/shape,

footwork, arriving into position/timing

of movement.

• Clean contact on ball with a chosen part of body or foot surface.

• Movements & interchanges of A’s should co-ordinate to cover

major goal-scoring areas within penalty area.

block shots from A2.
