Essence :

Quick passing movement to create different chaotic goalscoring opportunities.


Player A starts the drill by passing to Player B and setting off to position 1. Player B then passes across to Player C and sets off to position 2. Player C then passes to Player D and sets off to position 3. Player D then passes to Player A at position 1 before setting off to position 4.

Player A then has three options.

1) A hard pass to player B at position 2, who will first time deflect the ball into the circle for Player C+D to finish.

2) A long hard pass for Player C at position 3 to deflect.

3) A flat push pass to Player D at position 4 to receive on move and shoot to far post.

Four new players in.


Explain and ensure that the technical skills in receiving and passing the ball are not lost due to finishing emphasis.

Ensure that the players focus on their leads. These should be double leads away towards the cone before accelerating to receive the ball on the move.

Player C+D should play until ball leaves circle, important to practise the chaos of the circle.

Variations :

Different technical skill (Hit, Sweep, Flick).

Different distance to run or pass.
