Variable Passing with Changing Positions II

  • Organisation

    8 players take up their places in the box. Two players at every cone. Two players have a ball.
  • Process

    The players in possession start with their passes (see graphic). The players passing then run to take up the position of their team mates sidewards. There is always a straight pass and then a diagonal pass. The positions should be changed as quickly as possible.
  • Tip

    4 cones, The player should watch the whole field so as to not miss the next pass. 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.
