Passing in a Box with Options I

  • Organisation

    Two triangles are set up next to one another. A players starts at each cone. Two players start at the start position.
  • Process

    Player D starts with a corss-field pass to A and then runs to cone VI. Player A plays a one-two with B and takes up his position at cone IV. B runs to cone V. Player C passes the ball (5) on to player F and runs to cone III. F then plays a one-teo with D. The sequence of passes and runs contiuously repeats itself so that in the process every player takes up every position.
  • 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.
  • Field size

    20 x 20 Meters
  • Cone margins

    The outer cones are 20m apart. The inner cones 10. The distance between the inner box and the next cone is 5m.
