Passing Unopposed Exercise

 30y wide by 20y long area, players in pairs, one ball per pair except for the 3rd progression.

4 different progressions:

1) Setup like above - 5 steps between each cone, bigger if you want. The player with the ball dribbles to the tall cone passes the ball and then sprints backwards to their cone. Repeat for 2 minutes then switch roles. The passer will become the receiver and visa versa.

2) Same set up. This time the player with the ball will be moving as well. The player with the ball will be dribbling to the tall cone pass the ball to their partner and run back to their cone. The receiving player will then move to the tall cone and pass it to their partnet and then sprint back to their cone. Play for 4 minutes

3) Same concept as the 1st Progression. Whilst the receiving player is running back to their cone and towards the tall cone, the passer will be performing side to sides until the receiving player is back in the middle ready to receive the pass.

 4) Get the players to pick up the cones and pass in pairs in the whole grid. We want players to not just stay in one area of the grid they need to move around and find space in the area.

Coaching Points:

- Inside of the foot passing

- Strike the middle of the ball

- Non kicking foot aiming at the partner

- On your toes, no player should be on their heels

- When the receiving player is running backwards they should always be facing the ball and have their eyes on the ball

- Communicate with each other

- Make sure the passer has their head up so they know when the player is at the tall cone

-  For Progression 4 we want players to put what they have worked on in the previous progressions into practice on the move.

Play for 15 Minutes

Passing Opposed Practice

4 soccer balls on cones as the targets one each side of the square, 2 teams each given a number.

Coach starts by calling a number out, one player from each team will contest the ball and will be looking to use the inside of their foot and pass it at one of the balls on the cones.

Because it is a passing game I like to call out more than one number so they are looking to pass to their teammate, we need the players to have good teamwork skills.

Reinforce the coaching points from the previous practice.

After 15 minutes I would like to see you play a 5 v 5 scrimmage using the same set up as the numbers game and see how they grasp it.

Play for 20 Minutes

Scrimmage (10 mins)

Small Sided Scrimmage.

 Make the field wider than it is longer so players have to think about getting into space in the wide areas in order to receive the ball from a team mate.

Play for 10 Minutes
