“Look at the player you are passing to” • “Call for the ball” • “Good first touch” • “Accuracy important” • “Move to the pass”
Set up a 15 x 15 yards area with three cones at positions A, B and C on the diagram. Line up players with balls on cone A and put a player on cones B and C.
The aim is for players to move to the pass – A passes to B and runs forward. B comes forward and returns the ball to A then quickly moves around the cone to receive the ball back from A.
B now passes to C who returns it runs around the cone then gets a pass back. C dribbles the ball back to cone A.
Players move up one cone each time – A moves to B, B moves to C and C goes back to the beginning. This should be done quickly so the activity moves at a quick pace with few stops.
The position of cone A can be moved to change the angle of passing and to make it a longer or shorter pass.
