Pass to Ronaldo
The final pass is a vital one for any team playing competitive matches. If Juventus can get a good ball through to Ronaldo, chances are he will breakaway and score a goal – and that is the point of this session.
Set up an area of 40×30 yards with four cone goals placed around the area and normal goals at each end. We used 14 players in this session. You need bibs, balls, cones and two goals.
How to play it
Split the players into two teams of six plus goalkeepers. To score each team must pass through one of the cone goals to a team-mate who can then shoot at goal.
Teams must try and go through all four gates and are awarded one point for getting the ball through the gate plus another if the ball goes in the net. Teams can only go through each gate once. The game is not directional, so players can shoot in either goal.
This is all about the pass to release an attacker, and gets players to move into positions where they can receive the ball. Both teams must try to move the ball quickly when they win it, with switching play and accurate passing very prominent as tactics.
- 1. Play starts with the goalkeeper passing to one of the teams. The keepers are neutral the game is not directional
- 2. Here a pass through the gates is received by a team-mate for one point and now he can attack the goal and gets another point
- 3. The opposition must cover all the small goals so the receiving team cannot use the nearest goal to score
- 4. Quick thinking allows the team to score through the gates and then score in the goal
- 5. Each team must keep note of which cone goals the opposition players have yet to score through and cover them to make it harder
