Ball juggling in threes

  • Organisation

    2 cones laid out opposite to one another. 3 players. One ball.
  • Process

    Three players keep the ball in the air and pass to one another. Alternative: - The player with the ball calls out the number of touches the next player can take as the ball leaves his foot (1,2, 2 or 3). - Juggling in threes. Restrict to: foot only, head only, knee only. - The player remains in the middle and turns to lay the ball off to the next player. - Follow the pass. Players permanently change their positions..
  • Tip

    - Open the foot when passing with the laces. - If possible pull the toes up to put spin on the ball which makes it easy to juggle. As a result, the fine skills are coached less. - Communication. - Instep, outstep and laces, knee, head, chest, shoulders can also be used. - Don’t pass too hard.
