star passing pattern (15 mins)

Cognitive Barcelona star passing pattern:

Before receiving the pass, the player must place one foot inside the circle that is beside them. After the pass is made they must sprint to the middle of the star and touch the cone, then roate to their right.

Progression: We will add a tennis ball to the begining of the line. The person receiving the ball must now check into the circle, then toss a tennis ball to the person behind them. This will encourage the person looking quicky behind them before receiving the ball. This should help to improve field awerness.

A normal game of 5 v 2 but the player that passes the ball must quickly move to a different section of the grid after making the pass. Also, every grid must contain 1 offensive player at all times.
