This training warm up helps to create a passing team capable of playing up the pitch at speed. It is easy to set up and excellent for fast feet, with players not only having to think but look to see where the spare man is. MORE
Position three to four players in the small inner circle while two teams of three or four players play in the outer circle. The players in the outer circle may not enter the inner circle.
Each team in the outer circle has a ball and can score a point by passing the ball across the inner circle to a team mate on the other side.
Passes must be below waist height and must go between at least two defenders to count. The ball must be controlled in the outer circle.
Play the first team to ten points and then switch the defenders.
Improves low driven passes with pace to beat defenders.
Angles to receive, head up, striking ball firmly, and first touch/control.
Area: Large circle with smaller one inside, the size is dependent on the age of players
What To Call Out
- The passing team must play one touch. Passes can be made into space for a team mate to react.
- Use only one ball and the two teams on the outside compete, but they still must not enter the inner circle.
