Passing through the thirds

Organisation:

Use flat markers to create the thirds, place all the player into positions. Put a set of balls next to each goal.

Instructions:

Players are numbered 1 to 5 (or up to 7) and must pass the ball in sequence - 1 to 2, 2 to 3, 3 to 4, 4 to 5 - then 5 passess back to 1 to start again. Allow as many touches as they needed, but as players improve and more become efficient , try and progress to two touches and then can they do one touch if they are technically able.

Players are fixed in their third.

When the final player receives the ball he must shoot and the keeper must try and save.

The keeper then gets another ball and starts again.

- Head still and over the ball

- Kick with inside of foot, following through on line of target

- Keep ball low, striking through middle of the ball

- Picture the target, look to face the target player

- Accuracy, weight and timing of pass (preferably to "safe side" of receiver)

Progression:

- Make it competitive, who can deliver the ball from the back to the front the quickest

- If the ball goes out of play, the keeper starts again

- When the attacker receives the ball, the defenders can tackle

- Match scenario - turn it into a match

- defenders can go in D third and M third, Midfielders can go in M third, D third and A third, attackers can go in A third and M third (they are allowed to go into the third next to theirs)
