Square Passing Session (15 mins)

1, Make square as big or small as you like (smaller for ball to feet) or bigger for larger groups or wanting ball played into space (recommended to increase players visions/creativity)

2, Try to get players to take minimal touches to increase faster ball distribution and faster movement off the ball

3, Control with instep and outside of foot (flicks)

4, Dont let players constantly trap the ball!! (bad english habit) instead encourage players to move the ball across their bodies in a attacking motion (control with weaker foot, moving ball onto their stronger foot) ready for pass,shot etc.

5, Encourage them to get ball out of their feet so that they can get their heads up and see where the next pass is without them having head down worrying about another touch on the ball (increases vision).

6, Make sure after passing that players are running into space and not running into other players or areas already populated by others (spatial awareness)

PROGRESSION:

1, Bring shielding the ball into the session!!!.

2, When you shout go, the player with the ball turns his back on his partner and shields the ball. You count to 3 seconds and if the player shielding the ball, keeps the ball for the 3 seconds,he gets a goal. Award a goal to the attacker if he wins ball off shielding player.
