Original Setup


Increase muscle & body temperature


The players form a circle and pass in the pattern shown. Miss a player, lay off; miss a player, lay off etc. This should continue for a few minutes until all players understand the pattern the session.


Incorporate game relative movement. Have players move to the ball when it is played to them, and then back to their original position once they have played the ball away.

Progression 2:

Upon hearing either instruction from the coach or whistle if preferred, have players change direction of play

Progression 3:

At coaches second command or upon hearing second whistle, players are to play the ball across the circle and follow their pass.

Receiving player continues play with a lay off as before, and then runs across the circle to fill the space vacated by the player who originally played them the ball.

Coaching Points:

- Session should progress rapidly, encouraging quick thinking and fast feet

- A high level of communication should be emphasized from the beginning, without communication the session will be difficult
