Passing Practice

30y by 30y area split into 3 areas. The group is split up into 4 teams of 3/4 with 1 ball per group. Each group are looking to pass to the players in the same coloured bib. Encourage the players to visit each square.

Individual Challenges: Can you pass the ball in front of a player, why? Can you switch zones? Can you vary the distances you pass the ball? Can you receive the ball so there is no player/tagger in between the ball and you?

Key Outcomes: Passing weight/accuracy, movement off the ball, spatial awareness.

Progressions: 1) Players cannot pass to a player in the same coloured bib. 2) Players in the same coloured bib cannot be in the same area as 1 or 2 of their team mates. 3) Player cannot be in the same area as any of their team mates only (for the groups of three). 4) One team is the tagging team (yellows) and they will all get a ball and try and tag one of the other teams (blue, white, red). If the attacking team pass 3/4/5 times they will earn a point, if the tagging team tag a player they earn 1 point.

Play for 30 minutes - finish with a through the thirds SSG.
