Passing with high Reps

  • Organisation

    Three cones in a line at a distance of 5 - 8 meters. A player stands at each cone.

  • Process

    Passing between the three players.The middle player comes slightly towards the outer players, receives the pass and then lays the ball back with his first touch. He then turns 180

  • Tip

    3 cones, - Correct mistakes and give sound demonstrations. - Precision is more important than speed. The tempo can be increased only then when the passes reach their destinations. - When the tempo has been raised, the player can be set under time pressure by the other players - If the exercise is done for too long then players can lose their concentration resulting in mistakes. As a result the players should change positions every 60 seconds. - The standing foot should be 30-40cm to the side of the ball, in line with the ball. - When passing with the instep, the toes should point upwards, the ankle joint should be tensed and the upper body slightly leant over the ball. - Stand on the balls of your feet, the passing foot should be slightly raised to strike the ball in the middle. Bring your body over the ball and don't lean back. (Ball control is achieved using the same technique). - The foot should follow through after striking the ball. - Movement of the arms is important: When passing with the right instep the left arm should cross to the right hip; when passing with the left instep the right arm should cross to the left hip. - The player can lean back slightly when passing with the outstep. - When passing with the ball of the foot, the player approaches the ball diagonally with his body slightly side onwards to the ball.
