INSPIRED, CONFIDENT & EFFECTIVE COACHING

Receive, control and pass (U14 activity)

BALL CONTROL 2

Receive, control and pass

WALL PASS ROTATION

“Use the inside of your foot to control the ball” • “Call for the ball” • “keep your eyes on the ball”

This drill replicates a match situation where a winger is receiving the ball from distance. Set up three 10-yard channels. Player 1 – in the bottom channel – has the ball; player 2 is the passive defender and player 3 is the wall.

Player 1 dribbles the ball towards passive defender, player 2, and plays a one-two with player 3.

Player 1 takes the return pass and chips the ball down the line, across the middle channel to player 4 – the winger.

Player 4 volleys or heads the ball to his own “wall”, player 6, and runs past passive defender, player 5, to repeat the move.

What you want to see is a player drawing the defender, passing and going at pace to get the return pass. And an accurate chipped pass played with the instep/big toe.
