Run with the ball and pass at speed (U13 game)

Run with the ball and pass at speed
BOX TO BOX PLAYERS
“Look at the ball for coordination” • “Look up to see where the other group are” • “Look up often as you dribble” • “pass with pace in your groups”
Set up two 10 x 10 yard boxes on top of the 18 yard area. You need three players in each. Set up more boxes for more players. Have at least 10 yards in between additional boxes.
The session starts with three players passing the ball around in each of the squares using one or two touch.
On your cue, one player from each square runs with the ball across to the other square (It’s a race). First one to get to the square wins a point for their team.
When they arrive with the ball, continue passing one or two touch waiting for the next cue.
You can add a defender in between the boxes to make it harder.
How many players do I need?
You need at least six players.
Control the ball when dribbling.
Speed is the winner.
