Passing with Dribbling Variation III

  • 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

    Players A and E start the drill at the same time. Player A hits a cross-field pass to C, who lays the ball off to B. B then hits a corss-field pass to D who controlls the ball and dribbles at speed back to the starting position. As the group with players E and F have hits the same passes, the runs from players D and H cross. Just before, the two players call and then pass the ball in order to return to their start positions. After each pass, each player moves on one cone. The cross-field ball can be played on the ground or hit 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.
  • 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
