Passing with Control/Dribbling Varation I

  • Organisation

    4 cones are set out as shown. Two or more players start at the first cone. One player starts at cones II + III.
  • Process

    Player A starts the sequence to player B and the runs diagonally infield while B sprints towards cone III and player D takes up cone II. Player A controls the ball from B with ine touch and runs one or two meters with the ball before passing to C. A receieves the ball from C again after his diagonal run. After passing the ball C sprints to cone cone I around cone III. A changes direction after controlling the ball and dribbles at speed back to the start cone.
  • Tip

    4 cones, 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. The drill can be extremely tiring when conducted quickly. - 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 pass precision. - Pass precision is more important than pass speed. - Concentration must be held at all times. - The players will need a certain amount of time until they have mastered the drill. - A good touch and passing skills are required. - Anticipation, awareness, reaction, speed of thought and movement with and without the ball are continuously required. - Demand top speed at all times.
