Passing with Runs Variation II

  • Organisation

    8 cones are set out as shown. The ball is at the startcone. One player per cone. 4 groups, each with a ball. (1) Group 1 (2) Group 2 (3) Group 3 (4) Group 4
  • Process

    All 4 groups start at the smae time and make the same runs. Example Group I: A plays a one-two with B and then plays a long ball in the air to player A in group II. At the same time group II does the same and player A from this group hits the long ball to his counterpart in group I. Groups III + IV complete the same series of passes in their groups. After each long ball the two player within the group swap positions at a sprint.
  • 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. - Demand good pass precision but also focus on clean lay off before the long balls so that these balls can be played one-touch. - Pass precision is more important than pass speed.- - Concentration must be held at all times. - This drill requires high technical ability under time pressure - The players should permamnently communicate with one another. - Make sure that the balls don't hit each other and that the runs are simultaneous.
  • Field size
