Pass to a team mate using both feet (U9 activity)

BALL CONTROL 1

Pass to a team mate using both feet

PASSING IN PAIRS USING BOTH FEET

“Look to where the pass is going” • “Use the inside of the foot or the laces” • “Use the outside foot on each pass”

Set out three cones so that they form two gates side by side. Put a player either side of the cones so they are standing 3 yards apart.

Give the pair a ball and get them to pass to each other through the gates in turn. They must use the right foot to pass through the right gate and the left foot to pass through the left gate.

Players move side to side, alternating the passes through the left and right gates.

Make sure the players are putting the effort in with both feet, it isn’t very far to pass and they should have no problem kicking the ball, even if it feels a bit awkward at first.

Remind players that they should be passing with both feet.

How many players do I need?

Players work in pairs but odd numbers can easily be worked into the activity by changing the pairs round regularly.
