Possession technique

This fun activity is perfect for use on match days, allowing you to warm up your players’ passing and moving technique.

Set up

You need balls, bibs, cones and a mannequin (cone/training pole) in a 20 x 15 yard area with four cones on the corners and a centre mannequin (or cone/training pole). We used 6 players in the session.

Possession technique

How to play

Player 1 passes the ball across to player 2, who takes it and feeds into player 3. This man then turns around the mannequin or cone and passes on to player 4, who passes to player 5 then it goes back to player 3 who passes to player 1. For the second warm up, player 1 passes across the grid to player 2, who plays in to player 3. This player passes back to player 2 and makes a run around the mannequin. Player 2 now sets the ball down the channel for player 3 to receive and play on to player 4, who passes to player 5 then it goes back to player 3.

Technique

The brilliance of this session is in its continuous movement. Players must perfect touch, technique and team play.
