Passing in a Box with Options II

  • Organisation

    A box is required. One player starts at each box, three players start at the start cone. The ball is with the group of 3.

  • Process

    The drill starts at the cone with three players. A pass is played to the receiver who comes towards the ball (1).

    The team mate then lays off the ball (2).

    The starting player passes the ball cross-field to the next player (3) etc.

    In principle: long ball - lay off - cross-field ball The passer and player laying off the ball swap positions.

    The sequence repeats itself continuously.

    Alternative: The drill can startwith 2 balls at the same time. Both diagonally opposite positions must have at least 2 players.

  • Tip

    - 4 cones.

    - Timing of the pass is important.

    - Don't forget the runs.

    - Demand good strength of pass and pass precision.

    - Pass precision is more important than pass speed.

    - Concentration must be held at all times.

    - Anticipation, awareness, reaction, speed of thought and movement with and without the ball are continuously

  • Field size

    15 x 15 meters

  • Cone margins

    Distance horizontal/vertical: 15m
