Passing in a Box with Cominations Variation II

  • Organisation

    6 cones are laid out as shown, i.e. 4 cones make up the outer box in which 2 further cones are placed. One player per cone. The start cone must have 2 players.
  • Process

    The drill starts simultaneouls at the two cones where three players are standing. The first pas is into the middle (1) where the ball is laid off (2). After that a cross-field pass is played (3). The next pass is a square pass (4). The same sequence now takes place in the opposite direction. The 4 outer players follow their passes. The two players in the middle move diagonally after their pass to the outer cone (red dotted line).
  • Tip

    - This drill is very tiring and requires a great deal of player intelligence. - The standing leg is often too far away from the ball and/or the player leans back. - 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. - Concentratuion must be held at all times. - Anticipation, awareness, reaction, speed of thought and movement with and without the ball are continuously required. - The drills should run simultaneously. As a result the players must communicate and keep an eye on the other drill.
  • Field size

    15 x 15m
  • Cone margins

    The two outer cones are 15 meters apart. The third cone is central at a distance of 7.5m from the outer cones and set off at a distance of 6m.
