  • Process

    A starts the sequence by playing a one-two with player B and the playing a long ball on the ground to player C. C turns on the ball and tries to dribble past A with a trick. C and A then swap positions. The same sequence the runs in the other direction, starting with a one-two between players D and A.
  • Tip

    Start by running the drill slowly and then speed up. The receiver should always make a small, dynamic dummy run away from or to the side of the ball before receiving the ball. The drill can be extremely tiring when conducted quickly with only four players. - Under time pressure, this drill is very game realistic. - The reciever should call for the ball. - Pass and run timing is important - Players often run faster than their pass. - Don't forget the runs. - Demand good pass precision. - Pass precision is more important than pass speed. - Concentration must be held at all times. - The players will need a certain amount of time until they have mastered the drill. - A good touch and passing skills are required. - Anticipation, awareness, reaction, speed of thought and movement with and without the ball are continuously required.
