Passing in numbers (30 mins)

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.
