Passing with Dribbling Variation II

  • Organisation

    Set up the cones as shown to make two trapezoids. More than one player starts at the first cone. One player at each of othe other cones. The ball is at the starting cone.
  • Process

    Player A starts with a cross-field pass toplayer C, who lays the ball off to player B. Player B then hits a cross-field pass to D who dribbles back to the starting cone at speed. The players all move on one cone clockwise. At the same time, the other group does the same drill starting with a cross-field pass from E to G. The pass can be played on the ground or in the air.
  • Tip

    - The receiver should always make a small, dynamic dummy run away from or to the side of the ball before receiving the ball. - Hard, precise passes on the ground. - When laying the ball off, lightly raise the foot. - If the cross-field pass is played in the air, then the receiver must be able to lay the ball off with his first touch. I.e. The ball is hit precisely, not too hard no higher than the receiver's chest. - Make sure that the passes take playce as simultaneously as possible in both groups. - Communication.
  • Field size

    36 x 24m
  • Cone margins

    Distance between cones at players D to E: 4m Distance between cones at players C toF/B to G: 24m Distance between cones I and II: 36m Distance between cones III and IV: 12m
