Passing Sequence with Movement

  • Organisation

    6 cones are laid out as shown. To players start at the start position, one player at each of the other cones.

  • Process

    The passing sequence starts with a one-two between A and B and then continues with a cross-field pass to C. C lays the ball off for B to run on to and moves immediately after his pass towards B to the side. C then passes to D.

    B takes up the position from C, C the position from D and A the positions from B. The same sequence then continues on the opposite side.

  • Tip

    6 cones.

    - Precise, exact passing is extremely important for successful soccer. As a result passing should be regularly practised. It is important not to forget to correct mistakes and give correct demonstrations.

    Further important characteristics:

    - The standing foot should be 30-40cm to the side of the ball, in line with the ball.

    - When passing with the instep, the toes should point upwards, the ankle joint should be tensed and the upper body slightly leant over the ball.

    - Stand on the balls of your feet, the passing foot should be slightly raised to strike the ball in the middle. Bring your body over the ball and don't lean back. (Ball control is achieved using the same technique).

    - The foot should follow through after striking the ball.

    - Movement of the arms is important: When passing with the right instep the left arm should cross to the right hip; when passing with the left instep the right arm should cross to the left hip.

    - The player can lean back slightly when passing with the outstep.

    - When passing with the ball of the foot, the player approaches the ball diagonally with his body slightly side onwards to the ball.
