Pass-back training

  • Organisation

    The right and left players in the corner of the penalty box have a ball. The goalkeeper is in front of the goal and the other players are positioned in accordance with the diagram. The pressing player is in line with penalty area and the other goalkeeper is in line with the half-way line.
  • Process

    The left player passes the ball to the goalkeeper, the blue-grey player runs to the goalkeeper and attacks him. He must now decide whether to pass to either the right outside player or to the player on the half-way line, using a direct shot or after receiving the ball. If the goalkeeper makes a long pass to the half-way line, he catches the ball and sends it back to the left outside player using a throw out shot. The training process is started alternately from left and right.
  • Tip

    The goalkeeper is forced to observe the player
