Main Activity 2 (20 mins)

Organization:

1. Create a circle around two central players where the outside players are about 5-7 yards from each other.

2. The two central players should have a soccer ball each.

Instructions:

1. The central players begin the drill at the same time by passing to outside players on the opposite sides of the circle.

3. The central player then immediately plays to the player to the left or right of the initial player he passed to.

4. As this second outside player receives the pass he now switches roles with the central player and looks to continue the same pattern on the opposite side of the grid.

5. Leave it up to the players to decide whether to play to the left or right side of the outside player based on whether the player is being used by the other central player.
