Pass accurately to a team mate (2 yards) (U7 game)
Pass accurately to a team mate (2 yards) (game)
“Look to where the pass is going” • “Use the inside of the foot”
Set up a 10 x 10 yards area with two teams of three players in bibs.
Give one team the ball and tell them they must pass by throwing and catching. If the ball goes on the floor twice in the same move it goes to the other team.
Players in the team without the ball must try to intercept the ball or tag a player when he has the ball in his hands.
Call out “move to receive the pass” to encourage players to move around the area.
Mix it up a bit – change the rules so that once a player has caught the ball he cannot move.
How many players do I need?
This works best in groups of three or four players.
Finding space to pass the ball.
Understand who is on their team to pass to.
Good team building exercise.
