Simple Passing/Control II

  • Organisation

    2 players start behind 2 cones 6 - 8m apart and pass the ball to and fro.
  • Process

    Organisation: Both playres stand behind their cones. Player A passes the ball in a straight line with his left instep to player B. B lays the ball on to his left foot with his right instep and passes back to A with his left foot. A controls the ball with his right foot and passes back with his left. Note: 1 and 3 are the movement of the ball, 2 and 4 are player movements and control.
  • Tip

    - Always make sure that the correct feet are used to control and pass the ball. - Don't forget to train with both feet. - When controlling the ball, the standing leg is often too far away from the ball. As a result, the player often leans back. The standing leg should be 30-40 cm to the side of the ball. - When passing and controlling the ball the player's foot should be slightly lifted and swung downwards towards the ball.
  • Field size

    8 x 5m (depending upon player ability and number)
  • Cone margins

    Distance 8 x 5 meters (if training with more than two players.)
