Passing in two Boxes VII

  • Organisation

    A large box and a small box are formed with 8 cones. 16 players spread themselves across the cones as shown. Two players start at the first cones. Each group of four has one ball.

  • Process

    The drill starts with a long ball (1 - vertical) from A to B follwoed by a pass for C to run on to. Player C then passes the ball back to the start position to player D. This exercise can continue at the same time with 4 players per drill at the other 3 sets of cones.

  • Tip

    - 8 cones.

    - This drill is very tiring.

    - The standing leg is often too far away from the ball and/or the player leans back.

    - Timing of the pass is important.

    - Players often run faster than they pass.

    - Demand good strength of pass and pass precision.

    - Pass precision is more important than pass speed.

    - The second pass must be passed for player to run on to.

  • Field size

    20 x 20 Meters

  • Cone margins

    The outer cones are 20m apart. The inner cones 10. The distance between the inner box and the next cone is 5m.
