Triangle Passing with One-Twos Variation I

  • Organisation

    Three cones are set up as shown. More than one player starts at the first cone. The ball is at the first cone. Each other player stands at one cone.
  • Process

    A plays a one-two with player B (1+2) and then passes cross-field to player C (3). C then plays a one-two with B (4+5) and passes the ball cross-field to cone II (I.e. Player A, who has now taken up his position there.) The same sequence now starts from the beginning again. Runs: - Player A runs to cone II - B runs to cone III - C runs to cone I The positions are changed clockwise. Alternative: After half the time, the direction of play can be changed, i.e. the sequence runs anti-clockwise.
  • Tip

    Start by running the drill slowly and then speed up. The receiver should always make a small, dynamic dummy run away from the ball before receiving the ball. The drill can be extremely tiring when conducted quickly with only 4 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 strength of pass and pass precision. - Pass precision is more important than pass speed. - Concentratuion must be held at all times.
