Two Touch Passing Game

Line players up on a line and go over the Push Pass technique.

-Non-Kicking foot aimed at target

-Passing foot turned sideways-Toe up and heel down

-Lock ankle

-Bend knees... Smooth stroke about 2 inches above grass... Push it to them.

-Move two steps to the ball

Have them pass the ball back and forth as shown in the diagram. Play for about 3 minutes each game and play 3 rounds. First round make it a individual competition where the player with the most hits wins. The next round make it a team competition where the team with the most points win. Third round can be with the lease favorite foot. Make it a competition.

Players can run out an grab stopped balls on their side only. Cannot grab the ball till it stops or misses the target. Any interference is an automatic 1 point deduction.

Walk around during the game to help players understand the passing technique. Bend down and put their foot in that position it needs to be. This helps them understand if they are not getting it.

Window Competition (15 mins)

Gate Passing -20 x 20

Place about 8 gates(or mini goals) using cones and place them about 5 feet apart around the field.

All players need a partner and one ball. Demo the activity with a player from your group so that the players know what you expect.

Start with each group of partners setting up across from each other like in Example 1 in the diagram. When the coach say's GO players have 1 minute to pass through as many gates as possible in one minute.

Switch Partners each round and players have to try to beat their previous score each time.

3-4 rounds. Everyone goes at the same time.

2v1 to goal (15 mins)

2 v 1 to Goal

Put players into even lines at the orange stating gates. Place the balls in one line.

Coach serves as the first defender until everyone gets the hang of it. Then add a live defender who can intercept and win the ball and pass it back to the coach. This gives the attacking pair a chance to win it back to continue their attack. (teaches transition)

At first let them choose the dribble or pass to beat the opponent.

Add rule that they must exicute a pass before they can shoot to promote passing. If two passes are made then the goal is worth 5 points.

Play for about 15 minutes

Now it is time to scrimmage! 4v4 or 5v5
